8:30 AM at White River Entrance to MRNP
This hike was put togther on 8/14 after talking to the Ranger stationed at the White River entrance. The Ranger mentioned 1) the flowers are still out at Summerland and 2) there is a good chance of seeing Mountain goats at the gap. So here's a chance to hike with a great view of Mt. Rainier, see some flowers as well as some significant wildlife. Cool! The Ranger mentioned there is snow between Summerland and Panhandle gap but it's now highly negotiable. Bring your good boots and, if you like to use them, your hiking poles!
