Brief Directions

From the Sunrise visitors center follow the signs for the Burroughs Mountain trail. After climbing Burroughs Mountain turn left at the junction at the top. All along this ridge there are fabulous views of the glacier and the mountain when it chooses to show itself.

Description

I picked this picture as one of my most inspirational shots. This view of the Emmons Glacier always causes me to pause and look at the huge carvings the glacier formed. It makes one feel so small. Mount Rainier usually always steals the show, but as so often happens it is covered in clouds which brings my eye to the glacier and the pretty valley it formed. This is my favorite spot in the park.
