Sunset sparks alpenglow on Mt. Shuksan in the North Cacades National Park.
Rising 9,131 feet, Mt. Shuksan forms the western boundary of the North Cascades National Park. During winter, Mt. Shuksan and it's volcanic cousin, Mt. Baker (10,775ft), dominate the horizon and shape weather conditions that create world record snowfalls of up to 95 feet a year. Pictured here: Mt. Shuksan from Picture Lake at the Mt. Baker Ski Resort
