Well, as close as we could get without traction tires.
The wife, I, and a portion of the inlaws spent a couple days near Trout Lake, long enough to enjoy fresh snow and an outstanding view of the Lesser Rainier, but not long enough to get trapped for the winter.
I'll post photos as soon as I can. This morning, the air was clear and crisp, and the mountain especially photogenic.
Update: Photos here.
