    Thanks, Vaughn. As you know, clouds in the Pacific NW often misbehave … these polite ones had drifted down from Canada. BTW, this was the day I struggled w/ my dark slides that were freezing shut!

    To add a bit to Heroique's response, the North Cascades National Park Service Complex is almost as large as the state of Delaware, and includes less than half IIRC of the North Cascades range.

    It's a wild and magical place, and among my favorite places to trek, too!

    Here's an image from another North Cascades destination, after a chilly summer night on Blanca Lake (in the Henry M. Jackson Wilderness). 300mm lens, Ilford Delta, with an Arca-Swiss field camera.

    Your images remind me of why I want to spend more time exploring the North Cascades and less time in a cubicle!

    I’m sure you’ve noticed many people here who explore these mountains & post their shots.

    Below is another shot in the N. Cascades (last year) – at a similar high elevation. (While this snowy scene & the earlier shot are in the N. Cascades, neither is within the boundaries of North Cascades Nat’l Park.)

    The “N. Cascades” are in B.C. & north-central Washington – an area well north of Mt. St. Helens & Mt. Rainier – and a distinct subset of the larger “Cascade” range which runs down from Canada, through Washington, Oregon (think Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson), and into N. California (think Shasta, Lassen).

    BTW, people sometimes confuse the Cascades w/ the Olympics, which is a coastal range on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. The two ranges are very different in climate (esp. during winter), flora, fauna, and geology. For example, the Olympics have rain forests!

    From I-5 near Seattle, one can see the N. Cascades rising in the east (and the Olympics to the west). Thanks to the view left & right, it’s difficult to keep your eyes straight ahead on the road! Hwy 2 and Hwy 20 take you into the N. Cascades. Hwy 2 is its southern boundary. Further north, Hwy 20 travels into North Cascades Nat’l Park – which is “in the middle” of the N. Cascades.

    A land of savagery … or enchantment – depends on your preparation & point of view.

    Very nice – like yellow-tipped candles illuminating the land.

    Scouting helps me anticipate shots like this … I return early, set-up, and wait.

    Two shots, same vintage 210mm/f6.8 Goerz Doeppel-Anastigmat Series III lens, both at f/6.8 (I just like the effect, I know I'm abusing the optic), both Canham 8x10 camera, summer shot on Fuji Pro 160S, autumn on Kodak Portra 400NC (summer shot has been here before, but the autumn is a new contrast from the old).
