GORGEOUS!!

Who doesn't love to stare at mountains all day long?! Especially Mount Rainier! Washington is truly an amazing place to live. The PNW has so many great places to camp, hike, or do other outdoor adventures. Forest Lake is one of my favorite places to visit. My family and I have been coming here since I was really little. One thing that I love about this place is that there are so many places to hike. There is an actual trail called Forest Lake, and it is about 5 miles roundtrip, and can be done by the whole family. There are some other hikes that I would definitely recommend. One hike that I really like to do is Fremont Lookout. It takes you to a gorgeous overlook, where there is a fire lookout. The scenery is amazing and you get a perfect shot of Mount Rainier. It honestly doesn't get any better than this. It was adorable because there were so many little chipmunks running around- one became my friend and wanted to sit with me the whole time. Probably because I had food. Campgrounds and hikes become very busy in the summer months- mainly because the snow has melted by then so it makes camping more comfortable, and the hiking is definitely easier. This place is great, I would highly recommend it!
