Back in July I had the opportunity to climb Ruth Mountain in the Washington Cascades over three days. It can be done in a long day, but we wanted the opportunity to climb nearby Icy Peak and also get some landscape photography in so I packed additional camera gear.  Under the summit of Ruth is a large glaciated bench where we made our camp with fantastic views of Mt. Shuksan across the valley.

I was blessed to watch the sun go down over Mt. Shuksan and capture the beauty of the moment in this photo.  It’s one of my favorites from the entire year.
