Trip Report

Grand Park via Lake Eleanor — Monday, Aug. 10, 2015

Mount Rainier Area
Early morning reflections are the best!
Trail is in good condition, the foliage looks like fall already in many areas. The clouds provided nice back drop for us most of the morning. Then got very hazy as we left. Began hiking at 7 AM returned about 1 PM. Encountered many happy hikers along the trail. Early morning reflections on lake were awesome. We also encountered a HUGE flocks of 20+ blue birds in the meadown near silver forest. Just a lovely day in the park. I'm doing hike a thon, if you would like to sponsor me here's the link
Coming into view
Dry summer, crazy clouds
one of the 20+ flock of blue birds so fun to watch them all around us
