Tipsoo Lake

Sunrise at Tipsoo Lake with amazing view of Mt Rainier.  The hillsides are still covered in snow and part of the lake is still frozen as this area had one of its largest snowfalls this past winter.

Spent rest of the day hiking in Sunrise area of park. The drive was amazing with incredible views.  The trails were clear of snow and the hillsides carpeted in wildflowers.  Also lucky enough to have a couple of sightings of cinnamon colored black bears along the trail!  Check out the action in the video...
