We had nothing better to do on this fine Saturday in September. Why not head up highway 542 and see how far we can get up the snow. We made it to the upper parking lot of the ski resort and hiked up to Artist point which still had ten feet of snow. The image above is a panorama stitched together from nine photos. The image below is what I first thought to be Picture Lake but later discovered it to be Highwood Lake. Oh well no big deal the lake and Mt Shuksan behind are going nowhere so we will return. I got to ride my mountain bike down the rest of the highway from here.
