Finally a hike near Mt. Rainier! Have been looking forward to this all summer and was able to sneak this awesome high alpine hike in on the last day of our vacation...we were completely inspired by the older couple (probably in their 80's) who we passed several times along the trail...hoping that we will be hiking well into our "golden years". The views of the peak were breathtaking...the wild blueberries and butterflies and flowers abundant. We left feeling very privileged to have had the opportunity to experience this hike on such a lovely day.
