Last Light on Shuksan, Mt. Baker Wilderness

I was a bit worried when I set out from Seattle for the drive up to Mt. Baker to meet up with some friends for an evening of shooting. It was very hazy in the Puget Sound area from all of the forest fire smoke blowing in from Eastern Washington, so much so I was wondering if we’d even be able to see Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan. But as I went north the haze got progressively thinner, and upon arriving, it was clear as a bell. We were treated to some very lovely light, and the lakes were still as mirrors. Lesson reinforced: It’s easy to find reasons not to go, but just get out of the office and get out there!
