Pratt Lake

July 27, 2013

The first mile of the trail to Pratt Lake was busy until most of the other hikers headed for Granite Mountain when the trail split.

At around 3 miles you’ll find a good viewpoint at 3400 feet. We stopped to take pictures of the Snoqualmie Valley and the peaks above the Ollalie, Talapus, and Pratt Lake basins.

Shortly after that point we entered the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

11 miles, 2300 feet of elevation change, 2 alpine lakes , 1 grand mountain view and 2 sore knees; but it was worth it!
