There are so many beautiful places in Whatcom County. A great place to take a walk is Lake Padden. The trail does get a little wet in some places but it is gravelled and we went with our friends and their 2 yo in a jogger stroller that did just fine. It is 2.5 miles around which is a nice workout or a leisurely stroll.
It was really interesting on how different the lighting was depending on what part of the lake I was taking a picture. Some shots were cool blues and others were rich yellow filled warm greens. All the pictures were taken at the same time of day.
