We've hiked the Baker Lake and Baker River area before, but not from the south. To reach the trailhead, we drove over a one-lane road along the top of the Upper Baker Dam. The forest was filled with giant trees and huge stumps from the long-ago days of logging. Our first destination was Anderson Point... Continue Reading →
