Annette Lake is one of the most beautiful and easily accessible lakes in the I-90 corridor. It is very popular on the weekends, so we'll try to avoid the crowds by going on a weekday morning. Expect beautiful wildflowers, berries, waterfalls, and gorgeous landscapes. We will hike at a moderate pace (2 mph) and aim to keep moving, but nobody will be left behind. Bring a lunch for our break at the lake, and feel free to cool off in the lake water if it's a hot day!
