Day 1: The Bluest Water at Rainier National Park
Updated: Jul 10, 2020
While driving up to Mount Rainier I came across the bluest body of water surrounded by a forest of green giant trees.
Take a Look: Blue Lake
This Blue Lake lies about four and a half miles south of Mount Baker and requires less than a mile of hiking to reach it. Its translucent blue-green colors peek out beneath the shadows of a sheer rock wall partially encircling the lake, a reward for conquering the somewhat eroded and rooty trail that leads to it. Families, anglers, and hikers looking to experience a pretty subalpine lake will enjoy this short, yet memorable hike.
