Our Daily Sykes #14 – Mt. Baker

This, among other things, is, I believe, Mt. Baker from the somewhere south at sunset. Someone who knows the hills and lower mountains between Arlington and the Canadian border may recognize one or another of those several ridges. Again, like most of Horace Sykes’ slides this one is neither dated nor named. “]This, among other things, is, I believe, Mt. Baker from the somewhere south at sunset.

This Syke's view of Mt. Baker we know.  It is from the top of Mt. Constitution on Orcas Island, looking east.  Lummi Island rises above the mist hanging over Rosario Strait.  The south end of the Island rises in a ridge, but the rest of Lummi is low.   Somewhere in that mist I lived in a fisherman's cabin in the winder-spring of 1970-71 working then on a script for "Sky River Rock Fire" a documentary - perhaps - mostly of the northwest musci festivals held hereabouts in the late 1960s and 1970-71 too.  Once the Ivar bio "keep Clam" is completed I hope to get on with the editing of a project that will then be 43-years old.  From my cabin I look across to Mt. Constitution and reef netters on the strait.

Once the Ivar bio "keep Clam" is completed I hope to get on with the editing of this project that will then be 43-years old. A record for me. From my cabin I looked to Mt. Constitution above the reef netters on the strait. It is impressive way to catch salmon but requires hours of patience - like some film productions.
