I love this hike; gret views right into the face of Rainier.
Fun hike up all 3 Burroughs. Lots of people up First and Second, but just a few continued up to Third. A couple of snowfields still left on the trail, no need for an axe though. Saw goats on all 3 in herds of 10-15. Amazing view from the summit of 3rd, the drop down to the Whithrop is very impressive.
My husband and I visited Sunrise, and headed toward Burroughs Mountain to get away from the people. We were pleasantly surprised, as usual, to have the trail to ourselves after the initial 1/4 mile. Beautiful hike, beautiful flowers, beautiful mountain.
I was really impressed by the late summer wildflower
display. The open views and fragile floral biozones
are amazing, and should be shared by all.
