While Indian Bar and Summerland are often cited as the most beautiful places in Mount Rainier National Park, they are also among the most crowded. It’s a different story on the west side. Here you won’t fi nd any day hikers, and overnighters are limited. Bear, mountain goats, and deer freely frolic in this high parkland’s meadows. Refl ections at sunset of Mount Rainier in Aurora Lake rival those of Glacier Peak’s Image Lake. And the campsite? Legendary guidebook author Harvey Manning called it the most beautiful on the entire Wonderland Trail. I concur!
