Awesome Angle : Glacier Peak from McAlester Mountain

This photo was was taken from the summit of  7928′ McAlester mountain on Washington’s Sawtooth Ridge in the Stephen Mather Wilderness looking South at Glacier Peak which at 10,541′ is the 4th largest mountain in Washington as well as being  the most isolated stratovolcano in the state. Our trip to McAlester and Dee Dee Lake had us traveling through two wilderness areas both on and off trail with a scramble to McAlesters summit. The highlights were Mountain Goats, a crystal clear Dee Dee Lake deep and full of trout along with absolute solitude definitely one of the best backpacking trips around Sawtooth Ridge.
