Mt. Baker from Artist Point

In August I travelled further up the road from Picture Lake at the Mt. Baker Ski area for the first time. Artist Point is just a few minutes away from Picture lake yet I had never been there. Unfortunately, the road closed in late September for the season and I won’t be able to return until June or July when the road reopens.

Table Mountain – Mount Baker Wilderness

Tabletop Mountain from the start of the Bagley Lakes trail. I am going to venture further up this trail most likely in late August -as it was closed this early in June. The fact that I went down the hill on my butt for about 6 feet while trying to protect my camera made it clear why the trail was closed. These were taken just off the upper parking lot of Mt Baker Ski Area.

Mt. Shuksan Panoramas

1. Picture Lake. Thought I’d include the whole 360° panorama here – there are 1000’s of shots of Picture Lake and Mt. Shuksan out there on the internet – this shows the spot most have been taken from. I should probably go back when the fall color is in to make the whole scene look nice.

23 exposures stitched – Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

2. Shuksan Arm. There may be a better name for this ridge but I haven’t been able to find it via google maps/earth.

4 exposures stitched – Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro.
