Interesting, Z. I don't think that label was present last summer when I was scoping out the lakes to visit in the White Chuck Glacier basin. Google doesn't credit the tagger or give a source for the name. Clearly, whoever did that was not too knowledgeable of the area. They are associating this Guardian Lk with North Guardian Glacier which is 5 miles north and east of White Chuck Glacier basin and on the other side of Glacier Pk. I've seen some other odd names show up on GM and GE. There's a lake on Mt Pilchuck that was named "Benchpark" by Higman and Larrison in their book on Mt Pilchuck from the 1940s. It shows up as "lake Melijah" in Google (48.035712, -121.758566). confused.gif My pic is of a lake at 48.058,-121.1226. It's not readily visible in the current satellite image, but shows in historical imagery from 2006 in GE and is directly in the line of the climbers route to GP.

Two different lakes within close proximity. If you can name one you can probably name the other. Was only able to catch fish in one of them a few years ago.

Nice photo of Deer Lake and Little Bulger, in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. It's pretty rare to see an elevation sign like that in the ALW. I'm guessing this is a recent photo - how deep is the snow on the ground at Deer? Maybe shane w can give us a hint on the two lakes from April 6? No one seems to be biting.

Hint on the two lakes I posted..... Not in a wilderness area, and further west than most high lakes in WA, other than the Olympics.

Lakes Phillipa & Isabella? Something in King County around there? Here's another while we ruminate...

Those were some big hints. smile.gif Not a lot of lakes on the west side of Skagit. Looks like Shelf Lake and Hawkins Lake. Here's an old post with some more info for the curious.
