Sunny Saturday

Holy beauty..... This is why I live in Washington

This last Saturday my friends and I drove up to the area surrounding the Mt. Baker ski resort for a delightful day of touring (backcountry skiing). We put in a six hour day and were touring around in our T-shirts, a rare occasion for early February in the North Cascades. In terms of views it was the most spectacular day I have been up in the mountains surrounding Mt. Baker. We explored some new areas and got to ski some untouched powder stashes that was lying hidden in the shadows of the knife-edged peaks.
