The Rambling Writer Rerun: Chain Lakes Hike, 2018

Join Thor, Bear dog, and me as we repeat one of our favorite hikes, Chain Lakes in the Mt. Baker Wilderness.

A bit too much “life” going on this week. Last week, Thor, Bear dog, and I enjoyed another Geezer Adventure with a moderate hike and fabulous swimming in the mountain lakes below Ptarmigan Ridge, below Mt. Baker. One of our favorite hikes, hurrah! This week nerve pain has ratcheted up, so here’s a rerun of the hike from 2018. Some things remain the same: the terrible wildfires ravaging the West again this summer, along with droughts. We’ve been lucky here in the Pacific Northwest, but now more wildfires are coming near, with smoke from local and distant fires. Once again, we feel humbly blessed to live here in the mostly green Pacific Northwest. So let’s take a deep breath of coolness, greenery, and mountain wildflowers.
