Photos of Mount Baker From Vancouverby
“Baker looks amazing today,” you might overhear a local casually proclaim. “Baker” being Mount Baker, which is located just south of the border about 50km east of Bellingham, Washington. It is an active volcano in America’s the North Cascades range and is the second most heavily glaciated volcano in that range, next to Mount Rainier.
It has a ski area, hiking in the summer, and standing at 10,781 feet, it’s very visible from Metro Vancouver and Victoria on a clear day. We’re used to seeing lovely photos of the Coast Mountains to the north but Mount Baker brings out the shutterbug in many when it makes a prominent appearance, snowing off its snow cap at any time of year.

So great that you chose to highlight good ol’ Mount Baker! Even though it’s technically not a Vancouver landmark, it’s something we always try to spot on bus rides over the Granville and Burrard Bridges. On a clear day, it’s a treat to see it! Love the photos you chose to include here. Clayton’s first photo is particularly dreamy 🙂
