Sun Peak

 

November 18, 2001.

Andrei, Dan, and I went out for a little hike and a couple of views.  We first stopped at Sun Peak -- north of Mt. Rainier.  We saw alot of hunters w/ rifles in the area, but strangely we didn't hear any shots while hiking.  We parked around 4500 FT elevation and hiked up the short ~800 ft to the peak.

Lunch time.  Looking East, I think.

Since the hike was shorter than expected, we drove around the park.  We stopped here at Reflection Lakes.

Overexposed shot of Rainier.

Better, but still slightly overexposed shot.

Slightly underexposed shot of Rainier...but not bad!
