Left the Carbon River Ranger Station and did our best to follow the summer trail. The goal was to head for the saddle between Sweet Peak and Florence Peak.

Thin snow most of the way up. The summer trail starts inside the park, then leaves the park for the middle section. Sweet and Florence Peaks are both within the NP boundary.

Great views of Mt Rainier to the southeast.
