Sunset & Moon Rise Over the North Cascades

Sun sets and moon rise over the North Cascades from Chelan Mountains.

Rising 6,654 feet above the floor of the Wenatchee National Forest and 3,000 feet above Lake Chelan; the summer sun spins north and west casting the major peaks of the North Cascades into sharp silhouette. In the distance, Glacier Peak, Mt. Baker and the peaks of the North Cascades National Park Range.
