Glacier Peak or Dakobed (known in the Sauk-Suiattle dialect of the Lushootseed) is the most isolated of the five Washington major volcanos. However it dominates the skyline when you are hiking north along the 127 miles of Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail that passes through the Glacier Peak Wilderness. This stretch of trail, Section K for any PCT hiker, is committing with minimal access points (none from cars) between Stevens Pass to Rainy Pass.

When I first became a mountaineer, Glacier Peak was top on my list of climbing objectives. After years of hiking around or near the mountain, I wanted see what the view from the summit would look like. The climb that inspired this print was also the first mountaineering trip that I helped plan and lead.
