There are several small and scenic lakes just below Artist Point.

Last September, we decided to take a day trip from our home in Shoreline to Artist Point near Mount Baker. It had been about four years since our last trip there.

The trees look like sentinels standing  watch near the Bagley Lakes.

The area provides one of Washington State's most beautiful views of the snow capped volcano. 

Mount Shuksan is just over the next small ridge.

We left early in the morning, 5:30am and we arrived in Bellingham at 7:00am for breakfast. Just a little north of Bellingham we exited I-5 onto Highway 542 and drove the 60 miles to Artist Point area.

Mount Baker, the snow capped volcano, rises to a summit elevation of 10,781 feet. It is visible from some vantage spots in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.
