CHS - Just for Fun - Mount Fremont Lookout

This is part of the Mount Rainier Campout! This will be a SUNRISE hike to Mt. Fremont Lookout starting very early/late with headlamps and plans to be at the lookout in time to watch the sunrise. Foul weather that would make us unable to see the sunrise will cancel this hike. Does not count for CHS credit but is a very special experience open to any CHS hikers who don't mind hiking in the dark.
