Snoqualmie Lake

Departure: May 2, 2015
Return: May 3, 2015
Total Nights:  1
Distance: 8.5 Miles (one way)
Elevation Change: ~1800 ft.

This was a moderate to difficult hike since it involved 8.5 miles (one way) and elevation change from 2200 to 4000 feet at the highest point.  The hike started at the Dorothy Lake trail head with a cool over casted morning on the East Fork of the Miller River.

The first portion of this hike took us to Dorothy Lake on a moderate hike.  From there we continued to the far end of the lake where we crossed the lake’s inlet.  From that point on, the trail continued on a steep climb to a ridge at 4000 feet of elevation.  We stopped at this point midway on our hike to eat lunch and rest.

Once on this ridge, we proceeded with our hike on a steady switch back descend into Deer Lake and Bear Lake.  We pressed on past these two lakes into our final destination; Snoqualmie Lake. 

We arrived at our campsite, the weather was foggy and could barely see the lake right in front of us. We set up camp and tarps just in case it started to rain. Our camp was next to a pleasant grassy marsh feed by a stream.  That afternoon we just hanged out and explored the area.

The next day, the weather cleared up and we found out that the lake was actually bigger than what we had imagined.  The previous day we were not able to the shores of the lake since these were hidden by the fog.  As the day progressed the weather got warmer and warmer.  As we hiked back on our returns it was a treat to see the clouds roll over the mountain tops and in between the trees.
