  1. Clicking on a photo will give a larger view.

Reflection Lake and Narada Falls are two of those natural beauties that can be enjoyed by simply pulling into a turnout when taking a scenic drive, and stretching your legs a bit.

On this day, the weather was wonderful, but there were clouds blocking the view of Mt. Rainier.

Nevertheless, the lake was serene and full of fall color.

Narada Falls is one gorgeous place!

If you take the time to hike the trail, you can watch the water fall 168 feet!

Early morning at the lodge…the sun has not penetrated the woods yet, but sunrise on the mountain is very pretty!

Hubby and I drove back to Reflection Lake.  The mountain was out!

However, the sun hadn’t warmed up the lake yet.  You can see frost and ice!

It is October after all.  The mornings and nights are cold, and the days are shorter.  But the days are filled with azure blue skies and autumn color!

Our last hike was on the Snow Lake Trail.

The sun was warming some areas of the trail.

Other areas were still frosty from a chilly night.

Once up on a ridge, we could see the mountain.

    • I live on the other side of the state, in the northeastern corner; also very pretty country. I live in the mountains and my home overlooks the Columbia River and into Canada. Yes, I love it! Even with the pines having grown enough to somewhat obstruct my view. But I am not a fan of shoveling snow. Ha, ha!
      Hugs to you, as well, my friend!
