|What my GPS recorded|
Plenty of motivation to get out on the trail! It was so stunningly spectacular that I forgot to turn on my GPS - until we were in about half a mile. It was already10:30 a.m. & we expected to do a lot of trail - even if most of our conversation consisted of oohing & awing at the incredible huge trees & greenery that surrounded us!
|10:42 a.m. About a 1/2 mile in~|
Once over that one - the trail wound through the stands of trees & the footing was good, if narrow. We tried trotting for a bit, but hadn't gone far - when Shiny fell into a hole, his front feet dropping in about 18". He lifted himself right out - but that was the end of our attempt to increase our pace.
|11:14 a.m. Anderson Creek crossing - gnarly at the far side|
|11:19 - View of Mt. Baker|
|12:30 p.m. Baker Lake from Maple Grove|
|2:30 p.m. Mt. Baker & Baker Lake|
|Khari & Shiny|
|Suspension Bridge - far end|
