Sunrise Point offers nearly 360-degree views of the surrounding valleys, Mount Rainier, and other volcanoes in the Cascade Range such as Mount Adams.

Nevertheless, we were treated to some lovely views.

I would like to think that one day I can return and spend more time, but in reality I know that won’t happen.

Sunrise, as the name suggests, is one of the first places in the park to capture the early morning light.

I felt fortunate, as always, to be able to experience the glorious outdoors in a location I had not seen before.
