USA Summit Peak/Lake
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
This is a great, gentle hike to Summit Lake through beautiful forests and wildflowers in the spring. Once at the lake hike around and climb up the ridge to the summit. It gives great compositions of the lake in the foreground of Mt. Rainier or of the summit itself.
