I drove down to Rainier, leaving at 3am to see how the sunrise reflections were coming together. The Reflection Lakes are nice, but Bench Lake is a bit of a rarer treat because of the short hike required to get there. The question is how are the water levels? Usually by late July, a sliver of a shoreline has revealed itself.
Yesterday however, no such luck. But having driven so far, I took off my shoes and socks and waded to the spot I wanted for this shot. Surprisingly, it was refreshing, not breathtakingly cold 🙂
