We started out heading east on 410 and entered Mt Rainier National park via White River Entrance to Sunrise.
Sunrise was full and we were turned away and headed to Tipsoo Lake instead.

It seems as if spring has just begun here at this sub-alpine lake in Late August.
We then drove through Chinook Pass 30 minutes east on 410 to grab lunch.
Drove back and went south through Cayuse Pass through the Stevens Canyon Entrance. There are a few tunnels along the route.
|I think this was Double Peak|

Stevens Creek washes away trees taken down by the weather of the Mountain.
