Lake Anne, Mount Baker Wilderness.

Posted by Dean Hebert on September 18, 2016 at 11:55 AM

 I'm always looking for new hikes near my home in Chilliwack and after seeing some photos of the Mount Baker area I decided I needed to go and explore.

 The Lake Anne hike starts in the wrong direction, descending into a green valley. I wasn't happy going down the switch backs knowing I'd have to climb them on the way back.

 Early views hinted at the scenery to come.






 







 I'd timed my hike to reach the lake with plenty of time before sunset so there was no need to rush. 

 Much of the trail runs along the bottom of the valley before slowly rising towards the pass. I met a gentleman who was carring a camera and hiking with his two young daughters. We struck up a conversation which helped pass the time.

 As Mount Baker came into view I had to pause and take a few shots.



















  Lake Anne sits just below the pass at the foot of Mount Shuksan, which is pretty impressive from this vantage point.



















 I wandered down to the lake and sat beside the shore to have a snack. The lake is a popular campsite and even on a Monday there were plenty of people spending the night. With a couple of hours before sunset I took a slow stroll around the lake. It's an incredible sight!





































 As per my usual, I ditched the best light at the lake to see if I could get a better shot of Baker, which didn't pan out as well as I thought. I did get a descent shot of one of the neighbouring peaks before the sun went down.




















 As the last of the light faded from the sky I booked it back to the truck, inspired to return and see more of this incredible wilderness.
