Glacier Basin (Mount Rainier)

Sunny and 90 in Seattle makes a perfect hike to Glacier Basin and onto Inter Glacier itself. Trail is in perfect condition, only about 3 places where the snow is still on the trail, no hazard with that and expect to encounter water and mud, all associated with this time of year. Bears are in the area, lots of fur on the trail and fresh prints along side of the trail. In speaking to those, who actually got to experience that site, they are foraging for food and if you respect that, no problems at all. Even when they have cubs. A herd of goats was enjoying lunch on the hillside directly beside glacier basin.
