Watson Lakes Hike, Noisy-Diobsud Wilderness

[nggallery id=2]

Took the day off for a late fall hike in the Noisy Diobsud wilderness area of Washington state. A beautiful day, began crisp and cold before dawn, driving up from Whidbey through Anacortes, Sedro-Wooley and on up over the Baker Lake dam to where the trailhead was lightly frosted and remnants of the last days snow still lingered. Setting off through old growth forests, open meadows bursting with wild blueberries, don’t step in the bear poop, and on to Anderson lake for a look see before making our way over to Watson Lakes and spectacular views of the Picketts Range. This hike is  short, moderately hilly and now on my top ten day hikes.

Raised in obscurity and completely entranced with the notion that we should live our lives with the same valuable ethic that a conscientious hiker would, leaving no trace.
