Fagin's Hike of the Week - Lanham Lake

Updated: 12-31-2013
Even with the thin snowpack this still makes for a good trip. This snowshoe trip is just several miles east of Stevens Pass on Hwy 2. Park next to the Nordic Center.B. Some folks have suggested with the thin snowpack you might not need the snowshoes.  I would bring them especially since there will be new snowfall later this week..
