Hidden Lake, WA - Day 1

Fall is my favorite season for backpacking, so Cary and I try to do at least one trip during the height of the fall colors each year. It seems like there are so many favorite photos from these trips I have to end up breaking it into 2 days.. oh well :)

Hidden Lake was a relatively short hike, 8 miles and 3300 ft elevation gain, but is right in the heart of the North Cascades, and offers AMAZING views. From the lookout we were able to spot Baker, Glacier, Eldorado, Sahale, Forbidden, Snow King and even a bit of Ranier and the Olympics at sunset.
