Mount Baker Geology Guide Book by Dave Tucker

Dear friends,

P1020914

Glassy margin of a 300,000-year-old dike along the Ptarmigan Ridge Trail.

I am working on my next book, a road and trail guide to Mount Baker geology. The book focuses on volcanic geology. Most of the road and trail description drafts are done. Now I need VOLUNTEERS before the snow flies to field check distances, descriptions, and get back to me with your comments. It would be helpful if you had a GPS receiver but not essential. To volunteer, leave a comment or email me:  dtchico    at       gmail     dot    com  to request a pdf of one of these:

Middle Fork Nooksack Road and Ridley Creek Trail to Park Butte Lookout

Mount Baker highway to Heather Meadows and Artist Point.

Trails in that area: Bagley Lakes Trail [1.3 mile loop]; Chain Lakes Loop starting in Heather Meadows; Chain Lakes Loop starting at Artist Point; Heather Meadows to Herman Saddle; Ptarmigan Ridge to the end [11.2 miles]; Artist Ridge [to Huntoon Point. 1 mile round trip]; Table Mountain [2.2 miles]; Lake Ann

Glacier Creek Road and the Heliotrope Trail to Survey Rock and the Hogback;

P1020857

Volcanic ash layers along the Chain Lakes loop.

Baker Lake Road [driving trip].

Road to Schreibers Meadow, and the hike to Park Butte.

Rainbow Ridge Trail [unofficial trail]. Also known as Lava Divide.

I am still working on geologic descriptions of the Skyline, Scott Paul and Railroad Grade trails. I have a guide for Cougar Divide but the road is damaged and currently closed.
