On Friday (two days ago) we decided to go back to the ski area (Mt. Baker) and take a visit. Just look what we found:
Artist Point is the end of the SR 542 which leads to the ski area.
This part is not plowed in the winter and wasn't plowed at all last summer because of too much snow pack.
A little snow was left at the parking lot.
The restrooms were nicely plowed.
We had some amazing views. They don't call it Artist Point for nothing.
We hiked around and got in some great glacier views
All in all, my August days are very nice. Most days are in the 70s, though this weekend is a big heat wave, it'll get to as high as 84 degrees! Tomorrow we head for the Olympic Peninsula and we'll have to decide whether to spend time in the mountains, the rain forest, or the ocean beach. Decisions, decisions.
I've heard of dog days, but never experienced them.
