Another Snow Lake? A permanent snow patch may give this one the best right to the name. This child-delighting lake in Mount Rainier National Park is at the end of a short trail through subalpine meadowland. The lake has two campsites, a wading beach, and a permanent snow patch at one end where kids can slide and throw snowballs.
