We didn't have as much luck as we would have liked around Mount Rainier. At the start of our trip, 3 days were spent with influenza and the national park closed. On our last 2 days, fabulous weather but too great! Nonetheless, nothing takes away from the grandeur of seeing large mountains up close. I thought that the view from Bench lake matched Reflection Lake except for difficulty with getting foreground interest.
