    How far of a hike is that lake from the road? Is it close to lonesome lake? Nice report

    It's only about 2.5 miles to the lake from the trailhead. Easy access. Drive toward the Carbon River Entrance of Mt Rainier NP. Just a couple hundred yards before hitting the park boundary, turn left. Cross the Carbon River and drive up to the road end (about 6 miles from the Carbon bridge).

    Great photos. Beautiful bookies!

    I'm headed back to fish the upper Yakima tomorrow - sunshine, warm and beautiful fall colors ...... And the fishing has been good.

    We had great success last Friday on the upper Yakima (state to Bristol) throwing big caddis drys (YakCaddis) and -- for a short window during early afternoon -- small BWOs. Yakima-Oct-18-2013  001.jpg
