The Sisters and the tip top of Mt. Baker on a fine Autumn day.

North Sister. Until recently we haven't seen The Sisters with almost no snow at all, nearly all the small glaciers have completely melted, leaving bare rock in the summer.
 Except for one tiny patch in the shadow of a tiny peak
 Mt. Baker rises beside and behind The Sisters - with fresh snow.  Mt. Baker is 10,781 feet, the Sisters only reach about 6,900 feet at their tallest point, so their snow comes later in the season.
Mt. Baker from another viewpoint.  The main round dome is Grant Peak,  the tallest peak to the right is Lincoln Peak and the one in the center is Colfax Peak.  Do you see the face in the mountain?

Hello, the snowcapped view of Mt Baker is beautiful. The first view of Sisters is lovely too. You have a dry few months right, I wonder if it will continue in the winter too? Beautiful photos. Have a happy day and weekend.

What beautiful views! You've had some very clear days. And I do think I see a face on Mt. Baker.

Snow-capped mountains are always more vivid against a blue sky. I hope that climate change does not mean that their days are numbered … I do think I see a face on Mount Baker.
