Sunrise on Mount Baker

Looking behind us we could see Mount Baker glowing brightly, the entire night had been clear until now. To the left we could see a cloud head wall coming in which this view was striking yet very frightening at the same time. I wanted to take more time to capture the moment, but was on a precarious slope which capturing this photo required carefully turning around from my spot. Taken July 7, 2011 at 5:11 a.m. on Mount Shuksan near the Fisher Chimneys. To the left Sherman Peak can be seen in the photo.

Yet another reason for me to get north and explore!

Re: Stunning!

It's certainly worth while to go to the North Cascades, I hope to revisit this mountain some time soon. Mount Shuksan is certainly one of the great peaks in the area.
