After Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker is the most heavily glaciated of the Cascade Range. It is also one of the snowiest places in the world. The volume of snow and ice on Mt. Baker, 0.43 cubic miles, is greater than that of all the other Cascades volcanoes (except Rainier) combined. This is a unique view of the mountain, made along Boulder Creek near Baker Lake. When I arrived at my chosen venue for sunrise I found ground fog and clouds pulsing in the wind. Gradually the conditions improved enough to make a set of two photographs that allowed me to create the complete image I envisioned.
