Day 1: Weather: 80% precipitation. A glimpse of Mt. Rainier from the Southwest end @ 10;00 followed by a drive to Burley Mountain Lookout in Gifford Pinchot National Forest reaching over 6,000ft above sea level.
A nice way to end the day in the lookout tower warmed by a wood stove with a 360 degree panoramic view waiting the next morning.
