See high alpine meadows blooming as far as you can see! Rugged Goat Rocks area is situated between Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. This area became known as Goat Rocks because of the bands of mountain goats that patrol the high country. Much of the wilderness lies above timberline, providing outstanding alpine scenery: meadows lush with blue lupine and red paintbrush, lingering snow fields, and spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT), stretching from Canada to Mexico, passes through. Great views of Mount Adams add to the expansive views. Goat Lake at approximately the half-way point is a refreshing place to rest and cool down. Moderate pace. Leader: Tim Nair, tim_nair@mindspring.com 425-891-8668
