Snow in August
What do you do on a hot summer day in the Pacific NW? You go "to the mountain" to walk on the snow! Saturday was one of our warmer days this summer. We had three adults and three children (various combinations of family, relatives, friends) and headed up around the back of Mt. Baker. We got to see the active craters (dirty snow lets us know where these are) and we got to play in the snow.
The flies were a bit beastly, but repellent helped. We'll do this hike again, but after a good, hard frost to eliminate the bulk of the buggies. A great day, a great hike, and lovely people!
