Frozen Lake Trail, Mount Rainier National Park

One of our favorite areas to hike is around Sunrise, in the Mt. Rainier National Park. A few weeks ago we did a 7-mile hike around Burroughs Mountain, including Frozen Lake, which in August is more of a pond, but does still have some snow lingering around its edges. I never get tired of how the views of Rainier change along these trails, where it is so close that you can really notice every detail. I especially love seeing the mountain from top to bottom, where rivers emerge from beneath the glaciers and start their journeys down through the foothills. Here are my photos from this hike, and one from a friendly fellow hiker.
