Hiked to Mount Fremont first on a very warm day. Then went to Burroughs Mountain which seemed to be even more crowded.
Kind of a lame area, but the views are great. East Fremont had a good scramble, albeit a bit loose. Antler and McNeeley were the most junky ones of the day. A total of 12 peaklets.
Nice, easy hike through Mount Rainier National Park. A series of three peaks comprises Burroughs Mountain - enjoyable hike with awesome views of Rainier, Little Tahoma, and numerous glaciers.
10/02/14 Hike with my Wife Natasha. Her first time in Rainier NP We went all the way to the 3rd top.
Snow free except a 40 foot patch 200 feet below thirds summit. Sunny, clear, and low 70's. Lots of tourists (100 plus) between sunrise and second.
Started at Sunrise, picked up at White River campground.
First hike of my solo trip to Pacific Northwest. Nice way to start - absolutely breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier. Would love to come back and tackle something a little more technical next time!
Great summit on the way through to Glacier Basin
a lit hard with the snow in places abit slipper but other wise the hike was descent the way up and a nice view of Rainer. Also the weather wasn't bad, a bit to hot.
Went up the Burroughs mountains and Mt Fremont on a cold and rainy day.
steep and icy snow traverseon first bouroughs left the less able of the family behind but my wife son and I made it up that just fine. Coming down we really could have used an ice axe a fall there could be fatal. With an axe or for an experienced and agile mountaineer it is not a super big deal but even for me I would have liked to have an axe especially for the descent. Other than those two early crossings (maybe 100 yards total) everything else was a breeze. Not sure why the rangers couldn't just shovel that out I could do the whole thing by myself in a day. They are lazy let's be honest. For family trips here don't come up through frozen lake there is an alternate route that melts out much earlier and is much safer. Amazing views this is a special place. Lots of mosquitos on this hot summer day.
Well this makes nice for a family outing. One of the few I could take mom on. She was content to stay on 2nd burroughs in the stone armchair with stellar view, while Celine, Phillippe, papa and I took it to the third.
Several times up the first two. Pictures and map at Third Burroughs Trip Report
First alpine hike of the year, after having ACL reconstruction in the spring. And wow... it was worth the wait! Views like this usually don't come so easy! I only made it to Burroughs 1, but can't wait to go back and go all the way out to 3. Highly recommended!
All 3 Burroughs ... lots of mosquitoes and very warm. Got to check out the Emmons route from a different angle, which I climbed in June. Sweet hike!
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.
