Autumn in the Olympic Mountains

Tawny high country meadows on Hurricane Hill ablaze with golden light as the sun sinks beyond the Bailey Range. The air was heavy with the aroma of Alaska yellow cedar, a scent so typical of the alpine areas of the Olympic Mountains. Lots of memories of my days as a backcountry ranger in the Olympics came flooding back! These are truly magnificent mountains!
