Chain Lakes Hike 2022

Eleven MBC hikers turned out for my Chain Lakes loop hike. We met up at the Austin Pass/Heather Meadows picnic area. Three ambitious hikers proceeded up the Wild Goose Trail while the other eight of us shuttled up to Artist Point. We reassembled at the trail junction to Ptarmigan Ridge/Chain Lakes, and hiked down to Mazama Lake to enjoy a lovely lunch. Then we proceeded the rest of the way around the loop between the lakes and up to Herman Saddle, enjoying views of Mount Baker and Iceberg Lake below. Then we descended back to the parking lot, enjoying views of Bagley Lake and Shuksan. A gracious driver chauffeured us up to Artist Point to retrieve the two cars there. It was a beautiful clear day with stellar views of mountains all around, not too buggy, and only a bit hot in the sun in the rocky areas. Thanks to all who joined me! Photos on the MBC Flickr Page.
