Teased by this trail last week during the Bellingham 10K Volkswalk, I am certain that I managed to cover more than 10K today by following the Lower Bay to Baker Trail all of the way to Squalicum Beach and then taking several other intersecting trails that went through parks in that area too.
And since the tide was out, I even got to enjoy a very long walk along Squalicum Beach.
This is one of my “regular” trails as it seems so conviently located, and I have hiked it dozens (probably closer to hundreds!) of times. Winter, spring, summer or fall, I enjoy it. Go here – Snow Day – Lower Bay to Baker Trail, or here – Precarious Parking – Lower Bay to Baker Trail, or here Fall Colors – Lower Bay to Baker Trail, to see photos from a few of the other times that I have hiked this same route. Here are more photos from along the trails today.
I love finding creative art along the trail and certainly enjoyed this. I called it Chicken Head Rock. Curious, I looked for an artist signature, but found none. What a most clever eye some beach visitor must have had in order to have seen the potential of this particular rock. Not small, it is about four feet across. I like it.
