One of the best things about the day on the mountain top between Mt. Shuksan (pictured here) and Mt. Baker was that my husband joined me. It’s rare that we hike together, and I enjoyed every moment of it!

Roots and snags and fallen trees downstream… I guess this is one answer to where all these go when they whoosh by my home when the river is high.

Moody mountain, as once again the dark clouds roll in to overtake the blue sky of a perfect day.
