Reflection Lake is along Mt. Rainier's Steven's Canyon Road and accessed from either the Steven's Canyon or Nisqually enterance.
Sunrise is the optimal time to shoot a perfect reflection. Shortly after the sun comes up a breeze does too, causing ripples in the water.
Reflection Lake lives up to its name as a perfect reflection echos the first morning rays of golden light highlighting Mt. Rainier with its jaunty cloud cap and skirt of trees framed by early summmer flowers.
