Sky Sjue climbing up a shadow line towards the summit of Whitehorse Mountain is an image I always am fond of, even if I took it many years ago.
Outside the town of Darrington snow slopes rise from nearly the city streets. It's a mountain that is reminiscent of the Alps for it's proximity to the town.
High on the peak, after attaining the north face, we climbed onto moderate slopes below the summit pyramid. While fantastic snow met us, it was the shadows and the stark white and blue of the sky and snow that made the image. Not to forget Sky climbing along the very fringe of it all.
