Baker River’s braided channel just above Lake Creek.

After a hike up the Baker River Trail at the north end of the Baker Reservoir, I just had to write it up for the blog. Shuksan Greenschist, waterfalls, an entrenched delta-cum-alluvial fan, exhumed eroded giant tree stumps, and really cool river cobbles, including volcanic breccia from Hannegan caldera. An easy round trip of 5 miles, even good in the pouring rain. Read the field trip here.
