Lake Twentytwo

Lake Twentytwo is a fantastic spot that we haven't yet had a chance to get up to in summer. This wintertime hike gave us a feel for the area under snow. It was spectacular.

The general avalanche forecast for Stevens Pass and the North Cascades was moderate for our hike, and it is not risky terrain. Nonetheless, an avalanche overwhelmed a party on the trail in 2008, and one hiker died. The incident report notes, "This is indeed an unfortunate accident that occurred at a low elevation area not known for instability or avalanche problems."
