Not quite as sunny as we had hoped but the mountain still made an appearance. We started around 9AM and found Rainier to be totally socked in by clouds when we arrived at the meadows. We had come this far so we continued on. At the trail junction at the end of the meadow we took a right for about another half mile to a favorite lunch spot. Clouds were still out but so were the autumn colors. As we ate lunch a group of 4 grouse just came sauntering down the trail. In years past we've seen the occasional grouse but this year it seems like we've seen them on almost every hike. On the way back we stopped periodically to turn around and found the clouds had somewhat given way to some glimpses of the mountain. As we've done this hike on a bluebird day the views didn't quite live up to expectations but were good nonetheless. And the fall foliage is really starting to shine. All in all, a great day out on the trail.
