We walked over the Chinook Pass bridge. Wikipedia says: The Chinook Pass Entrance Arch marks the east entrance to Mount Rainier National Park. The rectangular log entry arch ... is one of several placed at the entrances to the park. It was designed in 1933 by the National Park Service Branch of Plans and Designs, and was built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The arch consists of two stone abutments carrying horizontal logs over the road. The arch functions as a bridge, carrying a horse trail, which is now part of the Pacific Crest Trail.
Into the mist, surrounded by wildflowers, evergreens, and rocks.
Beautiful alpine lake. Mount Rainier usually dominates the background, but not on this day.
To see this same hike on a sunny day, take a look at my blog post from three years ago: HERE.
