This is a picture of Shoe Lake. This is located about 8 miles east of the White pass ski lodge on the Pacific Crest Trail. This is where I stayed overnight. The hike starting from Hwy 12 Pacific Crest trail head up to Shoe lake will be steep and your climbing just about the whole distance. This is also the beginning of the Goat Rocks wilderness. Really nice views of both Mt Rainier and Mt Adams.
