Mt Baker and Glacier Trip

Evan, Ruth and Tucker

Our Mushroom Harvest
Coral and Chanterelles

Stunning view not far from the ski area


Mt Baker

My sons both live at the base of Mt Baker in a small village called Glacier. It is s funky place and in the rain forest. The residents are an odd assortment of outdoor enthusiasts and loners. It is an amazing place. It takes 1/2 hour just to get to the top of the mountain where the ski area is. Twice in recent history there has been enough snow to bury the toe lift! Tucker took Gretchen and me mushrooming. I loved the carpet of dense moss. This year it was harder to find Chanterelles. I think other folks had been through before us and got the bulk of the crop.

I dehydrated what we picked for winter use.
