Beautiful Mt. Baker

It's days like this that make me glad I'm a volunteer ski patrol at Mt. Baker ski area.

This was my final duty day for the 2006-2007 season, and what a day—34 degrees, sunny, blue sky, no wind, and probably no more than 100 customers—a really tough work day.

My only regret was that since I was patrolling on the Pan Dome side of the mountain, I couldn't go over to the Shuksan side and head out of bounds onto Hemispheres to get into all of that untracked snow. Obviously, some folks did get out there.

While there weren't too many customers to keep me company while I was on bump, the local birds came calling, looking for handouts.

I was certainly happy to oblige.
