January Six Word Photo Story Challenge: “Hometown Pride”

Spectacular Wilderness: This is our Home.

It was October. The wildfires in BC and Washington had been a problem since August. Liddy and I drove up to the Mt Baker Wilderness to explore.

I did not understand my chronic heart condition until I climbed up to this view of Iceberg Lake and Mt Baker. To say the 1100-foot climb from Bagley Lake to achieve this saddle was a challenge for me…

The reward, however. Stunning.

I was raised in North Vancouver and now live in Western Washington near Mt Rainier. The Pacific Northwest has to be one of the greatest places on earth to call home.
