Watson Lakes

The Noisy-Diobsud Wilderness is a small area that is adjacent to the giant wilderness of the North Cascades National Park, which is itself a part of the 634,000 acre Stephen Mather Wilderness.  So, don’t be deceived by the small 14,000 acre size of “The Noisy.” It is merely the edge of a vast wilderness.

This was a nice little day hike that started from the end of a long dusty road above Baker Lake.  Watson Lakes lie just inside the boundary of the Wilderness, and the approach brings fantastic views of impressive glacier-clad Mount Baker.

After visiting Watson Lakes I took a side trip over to Anderson Lakes which sit just outside the wilderness.
