Andrea's adventures on the trail…

Shadow Lake, Sunrise MRNP

on August 14, 2014

Nice little hike out to Shadow Lake with Janelle, out of Sunrise, Mt. Rainier. Perfect timing for wildflowers… John Muir definitely got it right when he said that nowhere else has wildflowers like Rainier does. 

We were able to talk to a couple of SAR helicopter pilots who were looking for a missing hiker, it was sad to know someone was missing, but also very interesting to get their perspective what a SAR mission is like.

Bugs were pretty horrible, but they go hand-in-hand with wildflowers, so they are a necessary evil sometimes.
