I’ve been on the road since last Thursday, and have been unplugged for about 90% of the time, and loving it! Welcome to Week 288 of Travel Photo Thursday.The camera has not been working overtime, either. That being said, here are a few of my favorite shots of the past week.

Approaching Vancouver International Airport
I arrived in Vancouver at noon hour to brilliant sunshine. I took these two shots on our approach to the Vancouver International Airport. The weather has magnificent since I’ve arrived.
I spent the night in Vancouver, and the next morning we were on the road heading to my friend’s summer trailer close to Mount Baker in Washington State. On Sunday we followed the Mount Baker Highway, winding our way to “Artist’s Way” at the top of Mount Baker. The hair pin curves kept us alert, and sitting on the edge of our seats as we admired the beauty heading towards the 8700 foot elevation, and again on the meander back down.
Artist’s Way, Mount Baker
On the road down the mountain…
Back at The Glen, with the sun beaming through the towering trees.
Mount Baker is a popular weekend ski destination during the winter months. In the summer time there are many trails to explore. The last time I was there, 3 years ago, we were not able to get beyond the ski lift area. Luckily this year, the gate was open, and we were able to drive to the final parking lot. As you saw from the photos there is quite a bit of snow at the highest elevation, so it’s probably a good idea to wear footwear with traction if you plan on hiking. Lots of people were using walking poles, too.
