Melanie and I originally thought about heading up to Blanchard Mountain, which we have not visited for awhile, but since I had a headache and am only a little more than a day past my second Covid shot, we decided instead to do the much easier Hertz trail at Lake Whatcom. It's one of our favorites, and the cloudy skies helped us make the final decision.

We saw this island stump had a few Canadian geese parked on top when we first passed by. Originally, we wondered if they had decided to make a nest there, but when we saw it on our return trip, they were gone. I did wonder about how they made it up there; I would have loved to watch their incoming approach.
