Washington Pass

"From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised."

Traveling from Spokane to our home in northwestern Washington on October 9th we timed our trip so that we arrived in Washington Pass on the North Cascades Highway just before sunrise, and though it was very cold, went to the overlook to watch the sunrise on the Liberty Bell Group of peaks.  These peaks are some of the most dramatic in the North Cascades, standing all alone far above the pass and road.  In the photos, the peaks are in order from left to right (east to west) South Early Winters Spire, North Early Winters Spire, Lexington Tower, Concord Tower and Liberty Bell.

Back in the parking lot we took a few photos of some ice-covered huckleberry bushes and then went out way, well satisfied but very cold.
