We'll start from somewhere in Seattle/Eastside around 6 AM, with additional carpool locations as needed. This is a beautiful area, the lake itself is gorgeous, and the hike through several talus fields and winter avalanche chutes makes it very interesting. We'll hike at an easy pace, and have a fun  hike, taking time to enjoy the views and take pictures. Optional dinner/social on the way back.
