    Default Mt Baker Ski area day hike

    Last October I went on a day hike at Mt. Baker Ski area. The last weekend in the Seattle area before snow hit the high elevations. We had pretty inconsistent weather this year, and my engergy levels had been pretty low, but this was my big chance to get one more hike in. The hike is about 3.5 hours from Seattle, so I called Songlin to see if she wanted to come along. We made the long drive up, in cold weather, and not a lot of time left in the day. Above the parking lot, there is a hike criss crossing the steep cliffs until you come to the upper area looking over the area. You can walk the length of it, and at the other end, we followed some animal trails over the edge, and down the steep sloop, that brought us to the return trail farther below. Not really a trail down, but kind of fun acting like a mountain goat.

    Washington state has to be one of the most beautiful states there is. There isn't anything in Kentucky that looks like that. Nothing.

    I finally got this picture, just to prove that I was hiking too, and not just making up stuff. This was the last Sunday of the Fall before this entire area got covered with snow. And yes, those are patches of snow on the ground. This late in October it gets pretty cold up there.

    Washington D.C. is that pretty. It's a great place to be.
