Baker Mountain Lodge.  This hike is intended for Tacoma Hiking and Backpacking Committee members who have also registered for the Baker Mountain Lodge Retreat this weekend.  We will head out from the lodge after breakfast.

We will go out and back to Lake Ann as one of the hikes on the first day of the Tacoma Hiking and Backpacking Retreat weekend.  Per trip reports from last year in early August this hike is snow free and absolutely beautiful.  No significant challenges reported.   Looks like it will be a really good hike for the first day!
