A Great View at Lake 22

One of the best things about living in Washington is the endless amount of hiking opportunities.  They’re everywhere.  I think my new favorite hikes are the ones that end at a lake.  They’re always so nice to look at after hiking such a long way, it just blows your mind.

I recently hiked Lake 22 in Granite Falls area, surrounded by the Mount Baker National Forest.  This was one of the most breath-taking hikes I’ve done, and I think the reason it was like that was because I did this hike in the winter time with snow surrounding the whole lake and mountains.

The majority of the hike did not show any snow at all, however, once nearing the top by the lake, snow and ice were everywhere.  And the lake was completely frozen over.  The mountains surrounding the lake were huge and covered in snow and it was so cool to look at, seriously a postcard photo-op.

For anyone wanting to hike Lake 22, the best time to go is during the winter when it’s a snow hike!  So much fun.
