Day hike to Mt. Rainier meadows

Some friends have been raving about a great hike to Spray Falls on the north side of Mt Rainier so we took off not-so-early this morning and headed south. We went through Carbonado and wound up at Lake Mowitch around noon and headed out on the trails. The weather was a little cool and overcast but the sun came out later. We didn't get a good view of the mountain until on our way out but the meadows were beautiful. This time of year is past the peak for wildflowers but there were some still there and we just like alpine meadows any time of year. And we saw two bear on a distant hillside - pretty cool! The only downside is that my legs are so sore...
