“Meadow summit views extend out from Nooksack forests to salt water and sweep from Mount Baker to the Border Peaks to the southernmost reach of the British Columbia Coast Range,” wrote Manning. Welcome to Excelsior Peak and the High Divide, an emerald carpet near the Forty-ninth Parallel laden with dazzling bouquets in summer and berries and vibrant colors in fall—all draped over a rolling mile-high ridge.
