Glacier Peak, located in the North Cascades of Washington State is the name sake for the 500,000 acre Glacier Peak Wilderness.
Thee images are from the Liberty Cap spur trail, near Buck Creek Pass.
Here, in no particular order, are the best night shots from this last year.
I am seriously looking forward to many new adventures in 2017.

The bridge connecting Whidbey Island to the mainland at Deception Pass is one of the photographic icons of this area. Wooded slopes and sheer cliffs towering over a deep fast channel make it dramatic. The span itself lends to being photographed.
Deception Pass State Park includes several short and spectacular trails, on both sides of the channel.
The luminescence of the green water below the cliffs adds to the magic. The heavily forested slopes above, fed by fog and mist make the place dreamy. Sunsets are especially fantastic.
Ruby Beach, in Olympic National Park is one of the most visited spots along the Olympic Coast. Seastacks dot the shore. The expanse of ocean call to you as you make your way along the stones.
There are several wonderful beaches here, First Beach with its mammoth driftwood, Shi Shi Beach with its wide expanse and solitude, Point of the Arches with its majesty and life.
Yes, there is a lot to see at the coast in Washington!
