    It was a great hike it was steep and a challenge. But very much worth it.

    I must have been pretty out of shape for this hike because me over three hours to make it to the top. We basically hiked in the fog the whole way to the top where the sun broke through with bluebird skies. We were hiking back down by 2pm and got fantastic pictures the whole way.

    A quick day hike that takes about 4 hours round trip. Provides excellent views of Rainer, Baker, Constance, The Brothers and the valley below. On a clear day, you can see everything from Seattle to Bellingham.

    Hiked up to the lake on Sunday (7/9/06). It started getting a little crowded in the afternoon, but once you get past the falls it's much less populated. The trail is is very nice condition and they just finished cutting back some of the overgrowth.

    Parking is tricky. If you get their after 10am on the weekend park before the last small bridge and walk the extra 1/8 mile. You'll be glad you did when it's time to leave. Don't forget your parking pass either, they will give you a ticket!
