After yesterdays teasing entry about what lay beyond the clouds at Artist Point, I thought I’d share another image captured on Mount Baker which provides a glimpse of Mount Shuskan in the distance. They say Mount Shuskan is the most photographed mountain in all of North America. Though I question how such a distinction is measured, I’ll willingly admit its near impossible not to take a photo of it while up adventuring on Mount Baker.
This image was made almost a year to the date prior to the one I shared yesterday on Mount Baker. The road up to Artist Point is only open two, maybe three months a year due to the extensive amount of snow the region receives. Its amazing the Washington State Department of Transportation even spends the money and resources to open it at all, but I’m glad they do, as its hands down one of the most beautiful areas in the Cascade Mountain Range.
Happy Tree Tuesday everyone!
