Heliotrope Ridge/Mt. Baker
Mount Baker from Heliotrope Ridge
Another great hike for views of Mt. Baker and wildflowers! This is also the climbers access from the north side.
Mountain Goat at Cascade Pass
Cascade Pass is a popular Washington state destination for hikers, climbers, and backpackers. It offers spectacular scenery, wildflowers...and, in our case, Mountain Goats. (For detailed information see my Blog).
Skyline Divide/Mt. Baker
Mt. Shuksan from Skyline Divide
Stan Miller and I did this hike in August of 2011. It's a terrific hike for views of Mt. Baker and other North Cascades peak -- if you don't mind all the others doing the same...
Weiser Road Trip
Crossing the Columbia
These are photos of our annual road trip to the National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest in Weiser, Idaho. This year represents my 40th anniversary of attendance. Actually, the linked slide show is mostly about the trip coming and going: Yakima Canyon; Hilgard State Park; Walla Walla; Columbia River Ferry; Republic and Winthrop Washington. For historical fiddle contest photos see below.
The view from Sauk Mountain trail
Stan Miller and I embarked on the climb of 1000 feet to Sauk Mountain, east of Mt. Vernon, Washington, on a lovely July day. It started out with some fog, which provided excellent photo ops, then morphed to a warm, sunny day. (For detailed info, see my Blog).
Yellow Aster Butte
Stan Miller on Yellow Aster Butte
Yellow Aster Butte is a fabulous hike. In the North Cascades east of Bellingham it provides 360-degree views of Mt. Baker and some Canadian border mountains at its plus-6000 foot terminus.
