Ascent Trip Report

Left Sunrise at about 9am and back around 8pm. Half hour stop at Mystic Lake and 45 min on the summit. Long day with 5000' or so of gain. Most on the Wonderland Trail so wore approach shoes and brought poles. Water available for filtering in many areas so never carried more than a liter. Unfortunately hazy from smoke which got worse as the day progressed. A highlight for the day - saw a beautiful buck eating a mushroom in the middle of the trail. My 95th Rainier 100 peak.
