Baker Lake North Hike (Maybe Dock Butte/Blue Lake?)

Saturday November 3 – Baker Lake North Hike to Noisy Creek

IF the snow holds off, and the weather’s good I might change this to a Dock Butte/Blue Lake Hike, if we need to keep our elevation low we’ll do Baker Lake North trail.  Meet at REI @ 8:30am with a stop at the Sedro Woolley park and ride located between Walgreens and the Food Pavilion at the intersection of Cook Rd, SR 9 and Hwy 20.  Bring a lunch and water, offer your driver $5 for driving you into the wild.  Contact Michael Davis at 708.302.9177 or mikesdavis@outlook.com.  We’ll likely stop at Birdsview for beverages after the hike.  Lets all hope for some decent skies on November 3!

Trip Report

5 members arrived at the Park and Ride for a day on Baker Lake with eyes on the clouds and surrounding mountains.  Good fortune ensued as very little rain fell and winds were null throughout the majority of our Baker Lake North hike yesterday.  Noisy Creek was noisy but not as noisy as Hidden Creek which is anything but hidden.  All streams and rivers were flowing into Baker Lake healthily, nonetheless Baker dam remains open so the Lake water levels are down 30-40 feet from this summer’s peak.

Thanks to the fine folks who came out to enjoy the outdoors yesterday, great group!

Pics?  Yeah there are lots of pics, uploading now on flickr:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/mtbakerclub/albums
