A big meadow at the start of the trail ...
Down the path we go!
Our group ... about half-way to the top
Mt. Baker ... covered in clouds!
J. and I with Mt. Baker in the background
Up, up, up ... it's always up!
A hidden mountain lake
We finally reached the top ... a restored 1933 fire lookout perched atop a rock pile. Such a neat little place ... you can reserve the lookout for a night and camp out. I can't imagine staying up there!
The view from the lookout
Mt. Baker ... still covered in clouds!
Inside the lookout ... very primitive sleeping quarters!
Another shot of Mt. Baker
And then we headed back down the trail ...
On the way down, we stopped at this little lake for Addy and Lucy to splash around
Lucy and her back-pack!
A dirty stream that we had to cross
One last glimpse of Mt. Baker ... it looks like the clouds finally went away!
One more shot of me and J.!
What a great and beautiful hike ... challenging but not too bad. Perfect for a weekend afternoon!
