Chanterelle Hike (Including New Extension)

Winter wonderland bathed in sunshine at 2500 ft on the extension of the Whatcom Lake Park Chanterelle trail. That was experienced yesterday by seven great hikers and the trip leader. This MBC hike had it all. We started in cloudy weather and the fog prevented a good view at the outlook around 10:30 am. It started snowing as we pushed on hiking the new extension of the trail and our hike turned into a wonderful winter outing and we had about 2 inches of snow when we stopped for lunch. On our way down the sun came out and rewarded our effort with pleasing sights. We even had a reasonable good view from the outlook when we passed it on our way down. At the lower part of the trail we had to brave the muddy trail before we returned to the parking lot at 2:30. Some photos are posted on the MBC Flicker Album page. Thanks to all the participants for a great hiking start in 2020. Happy New Year, Fritz
