Climbed Fremont, McNeely, Antler, and Dege that day.
Great views of the Emmons Glacier. Fun area of MRNP.
Kind of a lame area, but the views are great. East Fremont had a good scramble, albeit a bit loose. A total of 12 peaklets.
Did this one with my 2 1/2 year old on my back (~45 pounds with gear and all) making it feel more like a normal hike. Pretty easy, but great for the family or people not accustomed to hiking or if you just feel like an easy hike with great views.
Touristy but Sunrise is very pretty.
easy trail after Fremont and Skyscraper the day before. Nice walk up on relatively level trail. The view was top notch though! First time to get a good view of Mount Adams!
after Antler Peak for an easy day.
Smoke & low clouds on the range this afternoon
Had to bag a peak while at sunrise and drag the whole family with me.
A great easy hike from Sunrise with nice views. Just don't bring your baby up there and proceed to change it's diaper on the summit. Arrgh...
Easy hike and spectacular views!
Easy short hike and scramble from Sunrise Visitor Center. Great view of Rainier!
Nice views of Rainier from the summit.
Went up before they opened the road, hiked in from Grand Park and the back entrance road.

Trip report with photos of my hike up Dege Peak.
end of summer hike
My wife and I were attending a convention in Seattle and decided to visit Rainier. We climbed Dege Peak and then drove up to Sunrise. That was the day I decided to climb Mount Rainier. I climbed it 9 years later. I've been climbing ever since.
This was a fun little summit at Sunrise.I did this with my husband EK. I hope to knock off a couple more before fall and winter strike!
This was a quick hike I did while my friend took a nap in the car at Sunrise. Beautiful views from the summit.
