Picture Lake, Mount Baker



After leaving the city of Leavenworth, we made our way back around the Cascade Loop to do the scenic Mount Baker Byway. One spot I had to see was the Picture Lake. A very popular place to take photos of Mt Shuksan's reflection. It was a little windy the day we were there so it was hard to get that perfect shot. But,  I was happy with the reflection scene and the pretty walk around the lake.
 The scenery around the Mount Baker byway is just gorgeous.
