Mt. Baker

If you’ve been following our blog over the past few years you have definitely seen some pics of Mt. Baker, it is the peak that we’d stare at from our old perch on Lummi Island.

Mt. Baker is the second-most active volcano in the Cascades range after Mount Saint Helens and is one of the snowiest places in the world, setting a record in 1999 with 95 feet of snowfall.

We highly recommend the drive up to the mountain, to get there you take Mt. Baker Highway (Route 542) east of Bellingham for about 55 miles until it terminates at the Mt. Baker Ski Area. Along the way stop for some wine tasting at Mt. Baker Vineyards and check out Nooksack Falls!

    It’s a curious thing, but when you get close to Mt. Baker it is quite hard to see. Your photo is of Mt Shuksan, one of the most photogenic mountains on the planet, which is adjacent to Mt Baker and joined to it by Shuksan Arm, which is where the Mt Baker ski area is located.

      Yeah – Mt. Shuksan was the only mountain we could get a clear shot of from the Mt. Baker ski area.
