Managed to convince my sister and brother-in-law to drive up from Pierce county this morning for a beautiful day on the south side of Mt. Baker.
They brought their energetic 9-month-old puppy along for his first real hike also. Due to his age they were worried about the distance so we limited the trip to visiting the Railroad Grade instead of the Park Butte Lookout.
We also crossed paths with Slugman and Daisy the Wonder Dog. It was great to meet you Slugman and we hope you had a comfortable night on the mountain.
I'm really glad that my brother-in-law drove today because when we returned home we found that my car had a flat tire.
Thanks everyone for making this another enjoyable and memorable day in the North Cascades!
