The forecast for the weekend is warm and clear (upper 70s with cloudless skies in Western Washington, and in the 90s in Eastern Washington, according to the weather channel). If you are looking for a breathtaking day trip, why not head toward Chinook Pass?
Google Maps says it's about an hour and a half from Enumclaw to Chinook Pass. Along the way, Crystal Mountain boasts a gondola that offers spectacular views of Mt Rainier. While you're there you can lunch at the Summit House Restaurant, or, if you prefer, picnic at Lake Tipsoo.
If you can't go this weekend, I understand Chinook Pass is alive with fall colors in early to mid-October. Just know that the pass is closed for the winter.
