Day Hike - Lake Ann (Mount Shuksan)

Beautiful hike, but the last third was mostly over snow, including some that was steep.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Given the high snowfall this year, the trail is only starting to melt out now. We crossed patches of snow near the trail head, then descended to the valley floor. Most of the descent and most of the valley floor was snow free, but sections were quite muddy. The final third of the trail, where it climbs up to Lake Ann, was almost continuous snow. The scramblers in our party had no trouble, but for some of the hikers in our party, this was their first experience travelling over snow and it was challenging for them. 

Fantastic views from the lake, which was completely frozen. We saw some grey crowned rosy finches!
