Aug. 13, Sat., Ptarmigan Ridge (M) (GT Mt. Baker/Mt. Shuksan) 8 mi., 1800’ gain in, 600’ out. SLOW-PACED hike. This hike is part of our Mt. Baker Weekend. If you want to stay at the Mt. Baker Lodge for the weekend, call the Club Headquarters. If you are not staying the weekend, please be sure that your e-mail address on your profile is correct so that I can e-mail you with meeting time. Bring poles for any lingering snow crossings. This trail is rarely snow free. However, let’s take advantage of this year low snow accumulation and hike as far as we can.
