Sunset from Pipe Lake

This past labor day, me and some friends from Portland backpacked about 8 miles into the William O. Douglas Wilderness, which borders Mt Ranier National park on the East. We had originally planned to camp out on the shores of Dumbell Lake, but it was much closer to the trailhead, and much more "populated" so we trudged on, and found this amazing vantage of Pipe Lake, where we set up camp. The lake was crystal clear, and literally filled with cutthroat trout you could see from shore.
