Camp Sunset at Sahale Glacier

Camp Sunset at Sahale Glacier

Photographer: Jason Hill

This day began in the valley in the left of the photo, between Forbidden Peak and Johannesburg Mountain in North Cascades National Park. After climbing to Cascade Pass, we ascended across Sahale Arm in horrible weather. We finally reached Sahale Glacier in freezing rain and blowing winds. There were several other parties climbing to the glacier, but everyone turned back due to the weather and we had the place to ourselves. At least the clouds cleared briefly for this photo.
