Ugh another destination to add to my growing lest! Is the area generally fairly busy D&K or is it still one of those lesser known destination?
Nah, this is the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, the place is crawling with people thanks to its proximity to Seattle. I will say the Necklace Valley lakes are very popular, but the scramble up to Tanks is not so much. I think many Washington hikers are familar with Tank Lakes though, it is certainly not unknown. We also went mid-week so we saw no one else up above the treeline.
