Mt. Baker hikes June 25 and 27
Just a quick update: Hiked to Lake Ann on Jun 25 and did the Chain Lakes loop on Jun 27 (I know they're super-easy hikes, but sooo scenic and cool while people were sweltering in the valley). Only a couple of tiny patches of snow left, probably gone by now. One park employee told me that the conditions are what in a normal year could be expected around the middle of August; some of the wildflowers are already past their prime and I'm expecting blueberries soon!
