Today is my birthday. We spent the day hiking up to the top of Oyster Dome on Blanchard Mt. in the Chuckanuts, south of Bellingham. Icy in the way up and snow at the top but a fun hike and a great day.
This is looking south over the Skagit Valley from the trail head. It might be hard to see but there's a small clump of buildings in the lower left of the valley. That's Beautiful Downtown Blanchard, birth place of Edward R. Murrow. Just thought you'd want to know.
More next week.
