Mt. Rainier - Glacier View

Post by markesc » October 10th, 2017, 7:16 am

Did the slog through the snow up to glacier view after getting skunked by a road closure to Sunrise as I'd wanted to hit that buroughs hike :-(.. That ended up taking about an hour out of my typical late start day. The website showed every road open, until I arrived at the gate to Sunrise, "Road closed five miles ahead" Apparently snow/ice. Bummer deal!

Maybe next year?

This ended up being more a leg burner than I could remember!

Chilled out at the lake, sunset was a bust, but still ended up with the classic reflection:

Nice photos. The hints of fall color and snow cover make for a great combination. Beautiful report!
