Mt. Shuksan & Mt. Baker - Pictures and location info
« on: May 14, 2017, 05:53:41 PM »

Most visitors to the Pacific Northwest visit Mt. Rainier, the Olympic peninsula, Columbia Gorge and the Oregon coast. A place worthy of a visit especially in early October is the Mt. Baker wilderness area in the Northern Cascades, 135 miles north of Seattle. Every time I have been there, I see only folks from around the area and from British Columbia. In the fall of 2012 (1st week in Oct), a friend and I did a day trip to take photographs along the Artist Point trail and at both Picture Lake and Highwood Lake. The fall foliage was spectacular. see a sample image below. Chckout the rest of the images and lat-long info at https://muralipix.com/2017/05/13/mt-baker-mt-shuksan-oct-2012/

There are no larches in the Picture Lake area. In the Cascades, the range of the subalpine larch is limited to a narrow band on the eastern ridge, coinciding with the park’s eastern boundary. The subalpine larch requires a dry climate and high elevation. To the west, the climate is too wet, whereas to the east, the elevation is too low.
