The Western Horn

The Western Horn by Mark Griffith

My favorite photo of 2015, a large print hangs in my hallway. I took this on a climb of Mt. Stuart in the Cascade Mountains of Washington in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. By this point of the day and climb we had been on the go for 12 hours. This is looking back across the terrain we had crossed, this is the Western Horn and down the ridge Long John Tower. We were nearing the summit but had the real climb left to go as the un-ending peaks repeat on and on with some smoke from summer fires.
Watch the video of the trip.
