The unbearable lightness of mountains

Sometimes Mount Baker seems to want to up anchor and fly away.


If it weren't for the heavy concrete border marker, maybe the beach would lift off, too.

  3. When I used to go to the Abbotsford Air Show, they would announce the arrival of the Canadian Snowbirds by saying "Look towards Mt. Baker." At the time I always assumed it was a Canadian peak until I did a little more research. Maybe Mt. Baker has been eying a spot on our side of the border to make it so. - Margy

  4. Oh, look at that!

    Maybe the marker is there just to hold the beach down.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
