Snow Lake in Mount Rainier National Park

Today’s photo comes from near the end of the Bench and Snow Lake Trail in Mount Rainier National Park.

The above photo was taken on Monday, September 12, 2022. We were a bit fortunate on our trip to Mt. Rainier as the smoke situation got better, instead of worse, after we arrived on September 11. We thought about canceling but are glad we didn’t. That said, on Thursday of the same week, we did one of the most spectacular hikes in the park entirely in a cloud and, hence, couldn’t see much. A park volunteer said it was the worst day for visibility from the Sunrise Rim Trail Loop and Mount Fremont Lookout all year.

Hiking in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit (near Boicourt Overlook)

How many days do you need in Theodore Roosevelt National Park? That depends. If you are only looking for a scenic drive, you can see both the north and south units in a single day. If you like to get out, take pictures, and take some short walks, I’d say you need two days–one for each unit. If you are a hiker, and want to do many of the trails (there are multiple 10+ mile trails in each unit), then you probably want at least two days in each.

Today’s photo comes from May of 2020. Today we are heading a bit southeast of this location to kayak in Castle Lake.
