Attempting to squeeze some adventure out of a not-too-promising weekend weather forecast, today I joined four Peninsula Wilderness Club skiers for a short trek through the snow field above Louise Lake and Reflection Lakes.
I did experience a fine, albeit brief glissade down the snowy bowl.
Afterwards we all enjoyed soaking in a hottub at the Wellspring Spa near Ashford, in the shadow of Mount Rainier . This was followed by a tasty Mexican dinner at a local restaurant, putting a nice touch on a rather pleasant day (and beating the rain by minutes).
The pictures below show the waterfalls near the trailhead and a view of Louise Lake from the snowfield up above.
