Crystal Peak 7.5.13

Saturday, July 06, 2013

We loved Crystal Peak!!!
The views of Mount Rainier are amazing! The flowers are beautiful!
The hike is just the right challenge for us at almost 8 miles with a gain of 3100' to the top at 6595'.
We hung out at the top enjoying the views, taking pictures and talking to some great people.
We were worn out by the time we got back to the car.

Here's some pics:

Here's a link to my FB album too:

    Love all of the pics and reminds me of what I used to do but still do in a different modified way. So glad to see you out doing these adventures.

    Is that you on the top of that rock overlooking "hiding-in-the-clouds Mt. Rainier"?
    Great looking trail. I think I might like to try that one if it looks like that all the way. Also love the flowers, lake, and stream. I have to Google the spot to try and figure out what lake that is. But it's so cool. You might be able to go swimming in a mountain lake by next weekend as I hear you are in for a heat wave. Fun!

    Great job on your streak and thanks for sharing "home" again. Have a great one!

    I love the whole area you hike in all the time. You have awesome places around you! I have a lot of places to hike around me, and I love them, but not as beautiful as the places you have with all the streams, lakes, flowers, amazing views, etc! Thanks for always sharing your corner of the world!
