The setting sun lights up the western flanks of Mt, Washington and the Presidential Range on an early summer evening.
I had a hectic day to get to the point where I was watching this sunset. I finished up my morning hike of Mt. Flume and Mt. Liberty and spent a few hours driving around the northern White Mountains trying to find a spot to watch the sunset. The weather forecast was showing a large cloud bank approaching the region and, depending on where I went, it would either provide or block a dramatic sunset. I finally settled on a small peak just to the west of Mt. Washington with what I hoped would be a great view of the sunset light on the Presidential Range.
As the sun set, I was frustrated watching the clouds light up yellow and orange directly behind me. I paced back and forth across the open summit and almost gave up and hiked down when I noticed the very top of Mt. Washington starting to glow. As I watched, the glow worked it’s way down the mountain lighting up the entire mountain range and glowing off all the surrounding peaks.
