Bench Lake - Mt Rainier - WA



Just off the Stevens canyon road, Mt Rainier National Park, is this clear and pristine Bench Lake with an astounding backdrop of "The Mountain" !





A short 0.8 mile trail which weaves through a beautiful meadow which in this season flaunts brilliant fall colors.










The colorful mountain ash and huckleberry bushes giving a new dimension to this astounding landscape










An awe-inspiring view of Mt Rainier along this trail



Definitely a kid friendly hike !
The trail further continues to Snow Lake, which we however couldn't cover on this trip.



Mt Rainier and its reflection in Bench Lake....a magical moment to relish !
