Mount Baker

We spent the weekend in Bellingham after getting off the boat, visiting old friends and Mount Baker. Our goal was to hike up as far as possible so that Aaron could get a big view fix, but the road was closed lower tha usual due to a high snow year. We hiked along the road hemmed in by towering snowbanks to where they stopped plowing. After pondering our sandal and flipflop footwear we set up through the snow field to get a better view. Needless to say, our feet froze before we made it very far and glissading down was downright painful. Luckily we got some beautiful glimpses before our toes fell off. We all still have ten toes.
