Glacier Peak Wonderland

Day 169-170: Glacier Peak Wilderness

The sun-filled skies opened up expansive vistas of autumn-drenched color on distant cirques under rocky spires.

Backpackers disappear into nature’s vast elegance. We spread thin over the ribbon of trail and reconverged on a rocky outcrop for snacks or to catch our breath stolen by the awesome beauty.

Pockets of forest shaded silty streams packaged in moss. Unnatural brightness to the hues of alpine lakes and blueberry shrubs make you put your sunglasses on and off to confirm the vivid intensity.

Bask in the glory.
