Hike to two little subalpine lakes tucked within the craggy and spired Tatoosh Range. One sits at the edge of a shelf offering breathtaking views of Mount Rainier—the other lies in a talus-strewn cirque beneath the highest point in the Tatoosh Range. A short hike, it’s not a cake walk however with its numerous ups and downs. But in addition to the two sparkling lakes and stunning views, are waterfalls, wildlife and a dazzling array of wildflowers.
