Wonderful day hike to Marmot Pass and to Buckhorn Mountain. The weather was nearly perfect, all in all a great day. The trail leading to Marmot Pass was in great shape and the meadow at the junction with the Tubal Cain trail never disappoints. I stopped for short lunch overlooking the meadow and mountains before summiting Buckhorn Mountain.

The trail to Buckhorn Mountain was a little loose and I was happy to have poles for the descent. The sky was clear enough to see both Rainier and Baker. On the way down two deer walked across the path in front of me with the mountains making an ideal backdrop.
