Itinerary - 

We meet on day one in Glacier Washington at 8am.  After quick introductions and gear review we caravan up the Glacier Creek road to the Heliotrope Ridge Trailhead.  Three and a half miles of hiking up the comfortable and scenic trail typically land us in Mirkwood camp above the Glacier around 10 am.  Camp is located in the last stand of Forest before treeline at aproximately 4,600 feet on Mt Baker's North side.  It's conveniently located near bubling creek on one side and the ice cliffs of the Coleman Glacier on the other.
