Upper Palisades, MRNP

on March 17, 2013

Love love love the hike to Upper Palisades Lake in Mt. Rainier NP. No good views of the big Mountain itself, but this hike has its own beauty. There are only 2 campsites at Upper Palisades Lake, so if you’re looking for un-crowded in MRNP, this is a good spot. The meadow below the Palisades cliffs is beautiful, makes you feel very small. When I was there late last summer, Gentians were blooming everywhere. This will be another one of my “must do yearly” backpack trips.
