A Mt. Baker Weekend

Two drives in the country - two days - two locations - or three - or four

You start with a foggy day - clearing early

Sun rays through the trees in our yards

The sun through the tree is amazing!

Sparkles and fog/dew on the tippy top of a tree in the sunshine - with a spider web
Mt. Baker - from the Mt. Baker Hiway - what better place to find Mt. Baker

With trees in front and whispy clouds above

Two side peaks
Not as much snow as most years, it has been a very dry winter here so far - and mild

A trimmed up apple orchard in front of Mt. Baker. These are the very tops of the trees - they trim them to be low and flat for easy harvest.

It was hard to get a clear shot with no trees in front of the mountain

Down the hill and around the corner - Mt. Baker behind blueberry fields.  The blueberry bushes are red in spring, just before they leaf out.  They are about 5 feet tall.
And just a bit farther down the road - a farm in front of Mt. Baker

An excellent Mt. Baker day!

Well, I really can appreciate those views of Mt. Baker with a choice of foregrounds. Trying to get Mt Fuji without electric wires is an exercise in great frustration.

I never tire of seeing this wonderful mountain on your blog Jo Ann.

Beautiful photos - love those sun rays and the Mt. Baker photos are wonderful. I love the blueberry bushes and the big farm with the mountain in the background. Looks like a post card :) xo

Love these shots! We were socked in completely by fog Saturday and into Sunday morning, too. And I saw glistening branches and webs like yours yesterday afternoon. Love the look of those blueberry bushes with Baker. I don't think I've seen a blueberry orchard before.

Awesome photos, JoAnn! The one with the blueberry bushes in the foreground is my favorite...and I didn't know they were red until leafing out...I learn so much from so many bloggers.
Have a wonderful week.

It reminds us of our drive up through the fog to the snow last week. I just love the way the rays of sunlight come through the trees. - Margy
