I added a book and route for you. They are looking for a little more information on these pages Duseks. This was a great hike for the wife and dog. I have incredible shots of Baker.
I do love Bellingham, WA and the campus there. My wife and I almost bought a winter place in Belliingham, but in the end opted for southern Utah and warm rock since I get my fill of Alpine here in the Canadian Rockies. You live in a great place to enjoy the mountains. Cheers!
