We got up for another hike in the Paradise area on Mt. Rainier yesterday. This time we started off at Refection Lake then hiked up to Skyline Trail. We did an out and back from the Skyline Trail on the Paradise Glacier Trail. Back on Skyline we looped around on the route we did a few weeks ago but in the opposite direction to get us back to Paradise Lodge. From the Lodge we connected on a trail to take us back to the car at Reflection Lake. This hike was about 13 miles and 3300 ft. total elevation gain. We were on the trail for a long time as the place is so beautiful we kept stopping to take photographs.
