Visit a restored Lookout that has great views of Mt. Rainier on a clear day. The old lookout is called Kelly Butte and is located off of Hwy 410.
The dry pattern should continue and it has been dry: From Meteorologist Nick Eckstein “Most consecutive days on record with 0.01" or less rainfall at Sea-Tac: . 64 days (July 23 - September 24, 2012) *Still ongoing; Prior record was 58 days.
