PhotoDescr: It is surprising how many mountains close to Vancouver were not represented by a photo essay until recently. This one, which is conspicous to the north as one proceeds eastward along the Mount Baker Highway in Washington, was one of them. It is about the same height as The Lions. Bald Mountain (also known as Kaisoots Mountain, under which name it is shown on the Forest Service map of the area) is located NE of Maple Falls and directly north of Glacier, and is only 2 km south of the international border.
