I have done most of my hiking in the southern part of the state. My mountains, Rainier and St Helens, my two loves. Yesterday I ventured north to hike with a friend at a couple new mountains. Shuksan and Baker (Koma Kulshan) stole my heart. Here was my day in photos.

I remember loving this hike in the fall! I’ve never been in that area during summer. This is great inspiration to get up there soon!
And great inspiration to get back in the fall !! Anything with Heather in the name has my attention 🍁
Ah, lucky you! I camped there in 2014 and hiked to High Divide, and other places. It was glorious. I haven’t gotten back. I remember that hike as extremely tough. I’m in better shape now, I want to do it again and see if I still huff and puff like I did then! Gorgeous photos, as always.
Skyline Divide, not High Divide.
Either way you choose to do this loop is steep and exposed, but man, is it beautiful ! We were on the trail for hours and even dipped our feet in Iceberg Lake. It was a good one (for me) to take slowly. Why have I never hiked up here ? Lucky you, camping up this way. I will be back for sure. Also fell in love with bustling, artsy Fairhaven. It might be an awesome place to retire to !
