This will be my first time to Summerland.  Let's escape the summer heat and go explore this part of Mount Rainier National Park together.   This is a longer hike but we will take a pace that is good for the group.  Bring a camera and let's have a wonderful day in the outdoors. 

Feel free to join my other hikes this week as well.
