Day Hike - Carbon River Road

This ~10 mile hiking excursion has some great destinations. The waterfalls just kept getting better and better. The rainforest of Rainier is awe-filling! This was a mixture of beautiful switchback climbs through the woods that got the heart pumping and the layers peeling off then strolling along a flat gravel road giving time to stare up at the huge trees without fear of stumbling. The last bit had us traversing over the River bed comfortably on a series of recent man-made bridges with hand rails and included a peek-a-boo of Mt Rainier’s peak. Easy and varied hike.
