Meet at 8am at the the large parking lot signed for Bagley Lakes and the Wild Goose trails (not far from Baker Lodge). I believe this is the first parking lot after you pass Sunrise Lake. There are bathrooms near the trailhead.

This is an optional photo hike during the Photography Committee volunteer retreat. If you did not receive a formal invitation to the retreat, please do NOT register.
