Go north young man!

Thanks to advice from Joe, five of us headed to Baker yesterday, leaving Seattle at the reasonable hour of 7, delayed half an hour in Everett where I-5 narrowed to one lane for a sand truck accident. Greg, Matt, Mike, Phil, and Silas found some of the best July snow in their collective experiences. Smooth silk from 7180' to 6000', lots of climbers on the Coleman, avalanche debris on the route to the N Face. One skier came down as we headed up Heliotrope ridge, otherwise a total wilderness experience, cooled by cumulus rising out of the Middle Nooksack valley. A fine birthday tour.
