From my home its a short drive up the North Cascades Highway to the Baker Lake Road. The first 20 miles is paved and follows along side Grandy Lake and then Baker Lake.
Intermittent views of Mount Baker appear.
The last 5 miles skirt the northwestern shore of Baker Lake, the road is gravel here and ends at a parking area.
At this time of year the water level is so low that its easy hiking among the snags and channels.
Maples and spruce, old growth and new, the trees are full of color.
Fall in northwestern Washington is glorious!
