Upon reaching Everett it came to my attention that my backpack was still at home on the couch.
So, new plan is to head toward Mt. Baker (it's a lot closer, plus it is sunny here in Mt. Vernon and raining in Everett anyway) and either do the Chain Lakes Loop around Table Mtn from Artist Point or possibly visit Church Mountain if it looks like views could be possible.
This time I'm going to take my backpack with me.
