Baker Lake

Photography was my main interest during this visit to Baker Lake.

  • Snow and ice on road
  • Finally a beautiful day with crisp skies arrived as predicted. On a Sunday, Baker Lake was my choice for photography as well as hiking. 

    After some early morn shots, my choice for a short hike was Panorama Point. It was also as far in as I decided to drive as the road became too narrow for two vehicles. The snow was hard enough that I did fine with boots only. Nice views of the mountains as well as the water flowing. 

    The shots are in chronological order.

I came across these cougar tracks during the hike. These were larger than the palm of my hand. Cougar Tracks.jpg
