March 6, 2010 Easton Glacier on Mount Baker
« on: 03/08/10, 01:59 PM »

Had an absolutely gorgeous Saturday on Baker with 7,700 feet of great creamy, smooth skiing down the Easton Glacier from summit to car. Peter Mullen and I left the car at 6am, after a mile we were at the John Paul Scott trail and hadn't seen a snowmobile until we were a few thousand feet up and out of the woods. Hit the summit around 1:30pm for some of the most spectacular vistas I've ever seen! Looking down on Shuksan, which looked small from that height, as did everything else.
The skiing went on forever and it was all great! Couldn't believe the consistency.
Took a ton of pictures of course, and can be seen on

Thanks guys, on such a gorgeous day and such a beautiful place, taking good pictures is as easy as it gets. Now naming the peaks, that took some time, was fun too. Just had to put it on my list of things to do, then it feels like I'm being productive when I cross it off.
