Gorgeous day for a hike. One of the lesser crowded trails in Mt. Rainier National Park. Started just after 9AM which was probably a little late given the heat today. Trail is in pretty good condition, just a few areas that are overgrown and one minor washout area. It was a hot and dusty trail, especially on the way back. But the views are worth it. Great views of the mountain as well as Mt. Adams. Bugs were not too bad although when the wind died down at the lookout, you did notice them. After seeing all the recent reports of bug issues, we chose to be proactive and put on bug spray from the get-go so while somewhat annoying, we came away bite-free which is a win. When it's this hot, your best bet is an early start.
