(2) The trail is faint in the beginning but gets clearer as you get closer to and passed the dried creek. Cairns are clearly in placed. At this point of the journey, you've already reached the begining of the switchback. Look out for this sign
(3) Going through the switchbacks.
The trail is very easy going on this hike. The switchback is not very steep at all. A little bit passed the treeline, you'll get a glimpse of where you're heading.
At this point we also saw a couple more hikers on the ridge and four more already on top. As we were heading out too, another couple just arrived to hike as well. It was a beautiful busy day.
On top of Mt. Burke is a former Cameron Fire Lookout.
Surprisingly, everybody just snooped around the Lookout then sat outside for a snack. Well, it was getting too cold and windy for me so I invited my wife in for lunch.
