Beautiful day for a trip to Sunrise! Took about 2 hours from the Bellevue area to reach Sunrise. Decided to hike up to Sourdough Ridge, totally worth the little extra effort to walk up a meadow of wildflowers to see amazing views at the ridge. Views included Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Suntop Lookout and tons of other peaks. Casually hiked over to Berkeley Park...a few small snow fields to cross...no traction devices needed. The Park is blooming right now...found a flat rock to sit and enjoy views over the park including Mount Baker.

Frozen Lake is very blue.

If you walk up the Fremont Lookout trail just passed Frozen Lake...beautiful view of Mount Rainier and wildflowers

Big flies are out...didn't get bit, but they were circling me most of the hike

Lewis River Trail

South Cascades

We're at the cusp of waterfall season! With five waterfalls in a 7-mile roundtrip, this Lewis River hike is one to keep on your April-June to-do list. If you're hiking with creaky knees or kiddos, take in the magnificent, close-in Lower Lewis River Falls. If you want a longer hike with some ups and downs, venture all the way to Taidnapum Falls, 3.5 miles in.
