Wagonwheel Lake

Today three of us hiked up a steep mountain in Olympic National Forest to the high alpine lake called Wagonwheel Lake.

After enjoying views of the pristine lake, we climbed above the lake to a rocky ridge. During this climb, we passed beautiful trailside flowers and spectacular wildflower meadows.

Continuing our ascent, we scrambled up a rocky ridge which rose to the summit of an unnamed peak.
