August 9-10, 2017: Chinook Pass & Paradise (Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington)

The first day, I hiked from Chinook Pass up to Chinook Peak, then did the loop around Naches Peak and Tipsoo Lake; both of those hikes straddle the border between Mt. Rainier National Park and Wenatchee National Forest. The second day, I wandered around the meadows at Paradise on the south side of Rainier. From Pebble Creek (7200'), I started hiking up toward Camp Muir (10,100')... but then I decided it'd basically just be a long boring slog up a snowfield, so I turned around at about 8,100'.
