Road to Baker Lake just south of Mt. Baker today on the Feej. It was a wonderful day to ride with temps the '60s. Damn balmy by Washington standards. Here is the report.

thanks for the writeup...especially like the pic with the 2 blooming cherry (???) trees on the left. Good to read about other sections of the country.

Yes those are blooming cherry trees. There is all sorts of stuff to see in the state and since I have lived here before Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha arrived, I tend to take it all for granted.

No they are not. I bet two more weeks. I would come up on a weekday if at all possible. Call them to find out how the tulips are blooming or not.

Always a fun ride heading up that direction. Nice report Jim! :)

Good RR Jim.

Nope, Tulips not blooming yet.

I hate it when the voices in my head go silent ... I never know what those bastards are planning ...

Nice RR for sure. When the sun is out in the NW and you see all the green valley's contrasting with the still snow capped mountain peaks it doesn't get much better than that!

Thanks for the write up. One of my last good rides in 2011 was to Baker Lake. Can't wait to go back now.
