Due east of Bellingham Washington stands majestic Mount Baker,
one of the most beautiful mountains of the northern Cascade mountain range
that stretches from California to British Columbia,
Mt. Baker's magnificent snowy white
glacial peak remains covered in snow and ice year
round while the snow at lower elevations melts off to reveal mountain
meadows covered in wild flowers.
The pristine snow pack collected through
the winter months slowly melts and flows through crystal clear streams to
area rivers and lakes year round, contributing to not only Bellingham's drinking water
but the rest of Whatcom county as well.
The cool, clear waters of area rivers are also host to one of nature's
most amazing spectacles-- The annual salmon run.
