Last Light on Mount Garibaldi

Coast Mountains, British Columbia

As the sun sets behind another mountain the last light of the day shines on the summit of Mount Garibaldi. It only lasted a few minutes but the light was magical. Mount Garibaldi was first climbed in 1907 and is one of the few Cascade volcanoes that is made exclusively of dacite. Atwell peak ( 2655 m ) is the sharp pyramid at the front and the true summit of Mount Garibaldi ( 2678 m ) lies directly behind it.
