"Two Cascades Monoliths and a Beautiful Pink Evening"
Stuart, Dragontail, Prusik, Glacier
DECEMBER 4, 2011

I had never been able to get a good photo of Glacier Peak, so the goal of this flight was to get one. At the last moment, we decided to leave a bit earlier and first fly 45 miles south of Glacier Peak to the Mt. Stuart massive. The evening light was spectacular: Glacier Peak bathed in alpenglow against a magnificent pink and blue horizon—I think I finally got my good photo of this iconic Cascades summit!
