Mount Baker and Coleman Glacier from the Hogsback

Mount Baker and Coleman Glacier from the Hogsback
The first part of our Mount Baker climb took us two miles and up 1000 feet of elevation along the Heliotrope Ridge trail which ends at the knob just visible in the center of the picture. We did not go quite that far, however, and took a side trail up the Hogsback and narrow, steep ridge (glacial moraine?) that took us to the side of the glacier and another 1000 feet higher where we began our trek across the glacier. This picture was taken from the Hogsback.

The part of the glacier that we crossed is not visible in this shot, nor the south slopes of Mount Baker where we climbed to the summit. This is the west face of the mountain, known as the Roman Wall, with the North Ridge, another route to the summit, running down from the peak. The top of the mountain as it appears here is known as the Dome, but is not the true summit. That is to the east of the Dome and is shown in the previous picture.

Cette image me fait penser à mes balades dans les Alpes françaises du côté du massif des Ecrins (le dôme des Ecrins (que ne n'ai pas fait, mais vu d'assez près depuis le refuge des Ecrins), Neige Cordier, le refuge Tuckett, etc...)
