WA, best place to watch the sunrise

in the near future i need to just get away from civilization.

not trying to do any snow wheeling as this will be a solo trip.

just me, the jeep, and a camera.

anyone know any good spots?

Cliffs around Naches to the Northwest of Yakima are pretty good for sunrise.

You could probably hit up any of the eastern elevations on the Olympics as well. Either around Hoodsport or Quilcene.

In fact one spot comes to mine that might be cool.

While not exact, somewhere along FS Road 23 just north of Shelton. Right as you start on the forest service road you'll see a couple of pull off's that look back toward Mt. Rainier and the Hood Canal. It's not too far from the High Steel Bridge if you want to check that out too.


Here is a link to a daylight shot.

there's a million places on the sound to watch the sunset. one of my favorite things about this state. really just being outside in general and having a jeep to do it all in.

Mountain loop highway is great!
Then you can take green mountain FS road up into the foothills with some beautiful waterfalls and such.

Manastash Ridge right off the highway is great--on a nice day you can see the whole valley. Also Sunrise at Mt. Rainier http://www.nps.gov/mora/planyourvisit/sunrise.htm
