Haines Alaska, Peaks with New Snow

These are peaks visible from the ferry between Haines and Juneau Alaska. I was lucky to catch a brief opening in the clouds letting a little sun on the lower rock while the foreground forest was in shade.

The Mt Walker trail has areas where the trail goes through fairly thick clumps of wild Rhododendrons. I liked the backlighting showing the leaf veins.

Mt Baker from Mt Walker

You can drive a Forest Service road from US 101 to the top of Mt Walker (~2730′) which is on the northeast corner of the Olympics, just south of Quilcene. There are two viewpoints … one on the north and one on the south. This is the view from the north viewpoint looking across Puget Sound to Mt Baker.
