We recently took a much procrastinated hike in the Alpine Lakes region of Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forests. We hiked up to Talapus and Olallie lakes, which are only 2 of the 700 jewel-like mountain lakes of that area. It was a beautiful summer day, very calming and serene except for the pesky little mosquitoes that I haven’t missed since India :) Quite a few people were camping with kids out there, swimming in the lakes, and the hike we took was every bit worth the effort.
