Annette Lake - Day Hike
Saturday, July 14th the day began at 8:30 am heading from Seattle to Annette Lake in the Snoqualmie Pass. The trail was slightly crowded with families, dogs and children. The 3,600 ft summit with a 1,400 ft elevation gain was perfect for my first real hike since ACL surgery. The switchbacks through Humpback Creek Valley didn't last long upon reaching Annette Lake, which lies between Humpback Mountain, Abiel Peak, and Silver Peak. There was a trail that only went half way around the lake with small inlets to take a closer look at the water and the surrounding mountains. The weather was absolutely stunning and so were the views!
