Blue Lake Professional Review and Guide
"This amazing loop follows two long ridges exploding with wildfl owers and teeming with jaw-dropping views, all centered on a deep blue lake set in a deep rocky cirque where summer comes late—if at all. Huge chunks of ice languidly bob on Blue Lake’s alluring azure waters, sometimes well into September. But on nearby Pilot Ridge, blossoms take fl ight just after snowmelt and paint the hillside in dazzling colors while Blue is still white."
--Craig Romano, Backpacking Washington: Overnight and Multi-Day Routes (The Mountaineers Books).
