Take Hwy. 20 East from I-5 & head towards Newhalem, go through Newhalem towards the town of Early Winters, Rainy Lake is in between Newhalem & Early Winters.
A short, easy one mile hike to Rainy Lake (wheelchair accessible). It's not often you get up there with snow on the ground. Hwy. 20 gets closed down for the winter due to to much snow & avalanches. So with seeing six inches of fresh snow on the ground I hiked up there to see this view.
