GET GOBSMACKED BY MOUNTAIN LIGHT

There’s something magical about the glow that

bathes a mountain peak at dawn or dusk. 

 

 Landscape photographers pursue this luminous

light as it it were a rare , white spirit bear.

 

“We sleep in the middle of the day,” 

 

Cheam Peak, called Theeth-uhl-kay in the

Halqemeylem language of the Sto:lo and usually

 referred to as Mount Cheam, is the furthest

 northerly peak of the Cheam Range, a subrange

of thte Skagit Range of the Canadian Cascades

mountains.

It dominates the eastern Fraser Valley, rising above

Bridal Falls and Agassiz just east of Chilliwack, and

west of Hope British Columbia.

The north face, plunging 2,000 m (6,562 ft) to the

 Valley floor, has rarely been climbed.

 

 However, an easy trail provides access to the

summit from a subalpine bowl to the southwest.

In the mountains, patience is reqarded. 

 

The quality of mountain light makes everything it

touches appear bright and fresh. 

 

 It grabs your attention. 

 

 It has a clarity to it that comes from lights in

the alpine
