On Sat. March 21st we went up to Baker Lake and Swift Creek. We had beautiful weather and the mountains were visible all around us. This was the weekend before the Gov. declared a “stay at home order” due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but there were hints that it might be coming. Anyway, 6 of us made this trip for the interesting metamorphic jaspers, nephrite jade, and agate located here. The snow was mostly gone and the water was running about 2 1/2 feet deep.
