On Labor Day weekend we finally had the opportunity to go up to Artist Point near Mt. Baker. Our other opportunities this past summer had been squelched by rain and last summer Artist Point didn’t even open because there was too much snow to clear the road. I LOVE going to Artist Point and we ended up with an absolutely beautiful day up there. We took my parents along and we all enjoyed the day and God’s creation immensely.
Sarah enjoyed experimenting with my camera on our hikes.
I enjoyed not hiking the entire time with a heavy camera around my neck…mostly I just whipped out my phone for quick little shots like this one: “Take our picture on the snow, mommy!”
It was cloudy at first, but still gorgeous and as the day went on, the skies cleared quite a bit.
They have conquered the mountain!
Different rock…they tried to freak me out that they were falling off as I came around the corner.
We also stopped at the Fire & Ice trails. We love this bridge & these trails – very Middle Earth.
Wow – 3 goofy pictures of my family all in one day. We must have been having LOTS of fun!
We walked further down into the valley on this trail than we have before. Got to the snowfield and the “ice caves.”
On our way down, Mt. Shuksan was incredibly beautiful. I’m thinking this picture just might be enlargement worthy. It was glorious. It’s one of my most favorite spots to visit over and over again. It’s just not possible to soak in all the majesty that God left in this place when He carved out that mountain with the glaciers.
