Nice! Really enjoyed your pictures, Karl. I take it that your distance of 14 km return didn't include the 7 miles of road walking. Lots of people already doing YAB by the looks of it. Hello...

Unfortunately, access from the Damfino Lakes trail head is no longer possible as the Canyon Creek Road has been washed out for more than a year. So it's either Welcome Pass or Excelsior Pass to get...

Wow! I expected snow on most of the trail, but not this much. A nice little hike in summer (did it in June 2015 without a trace of snow!) Great report, Karl, and wonderful photos with explanatory...

Thanks for this update, Karl. The amount of snow is disheartening and I fear that it will not be totally melted out by the time the new stuff falls. I did this hike last August and quite enjoyed...

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...

Simon was at Corriveau before we had the most recent dump of snow. I would expect a lot of slushy snow for the last third of the hike to the lake. Fortunately, the route through the snowy parts has...

Isn't this the road into the watershed that supplies the drinking water for Abbotsford and Mission? If so, it will be cleared pretty quick.
