I loved this hike. Mount Rainier was in view the whole hike. It was a busy day and there were many other hikers out. There was still patches of snow because of the heavy winter snowfall. Probably one reason for so many people on the trail... there weren't many trails that weren't under 2 feet of snow!!
The trail was a little dry and dusty, but there were some wildflowers to photograph.
It starts off at 7,000 plus elevation, so that took a little getting used to. There were sections of the trail there were like walking on chunks of broken dinner plates!! I liked the bare trail better. We made it to the Mt. Freemont fire lookout for lunch and returned in time to drive around to see more of Mount Rainier. Great day!!
