We hiked uphill in the cooler forest and we were both glad for an earlier start. When the trail hits the ridge we got our first view of Baker and one of the last lingering patches of wildflowers. We continued hiking up the divide looking for a good site to set up our tents. I recalled a place a friend and I had camped several years prior...I was looking for that spot. We finally found it, set up camp, and enjoyed the evening color. Hiked out in the morning.
