Tipsoo Lake, at an elevation of 5,299 feet (1,615 m) above sea level, is an alpine lake within the Northern Cascade Range located near the summit of Chinook Pass in Pierce County, Washington.[1]

The area is popular with photographers as the shores and surrounding area abound with the vibrant yellow, orange and purple colors of huckleberry, lupine, Indian paintbrush, and Partridgefoot. There are several hiking trails near the lake that vary in degrees of difficulty and share spectacular views of Mount Rainier and the surrounding landscape.[2]
