Mt. Chamberlin, Midnight Sun

Eighty miles to the southwest, Chamberlin's (elev. 9,020 ft.) improbable Mt. Fuji-like cone rises into the evening light. At a camp on the edge of the mountains, the north slope of the Brooks Range is bathed in a light that is both piercing and gentle. Angled low, the midnight sun skims barely above the northwest horizon. Long shadows reach across the valley, projecting a mountain profile below the summit of still-illuminated peaks to the east (off camera).
