Basking in the Alpenglow (Mt. Baker, WA)

This was the alpenglow, to me the most impressive of all the terrestrial manifestations of God.
— John Muir

This adventure was definitely one for the books. My friend had never been snow camping before, so I thought what better place to go than the Mt. Baker backcountry in Washington State. We trekked from Heather Meadows up past Artist Point and Huntoon Point and found the perfect camp spot situated between Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan. Although the evening and night were overcast and partially cloudy, we woke up to beautiful clear skies and, best of all, this image of Mt. Baker basking in alpenglow! I captured this photograph and then stopped to soak in all of the mountain glory around us.
