This hike affords head on views of Mt Baker and Shuksan from a flower filled traverse. The views and fields seem endless. If the view is not there look down, if it is look both up and down. This is a naturalist hike which means we stop for views, flowers and berries. We probably will not do the full 9 miles if berries are out. I can't pick and hike at the same time.
