August 19, 2020: Noble Knob, Yakima Peak, & Naches Peak (Washington)

Three short hikes east of Mt. Rainier. First, I went to Noble Knob, which was pretty boring because the flowers had already peaked. So I drove back south to Chinook Pass and decided to hike up Yakima Peak (which has no official trail) because I didn't want to deal with crowds. In the late afternoon/evening — after most of the tourists had gone home — I did the Naches Peak loop hike.
