The highest peak in the lower 48 at 14,505' ... shot from our car camp during a winter road trip. Almost as sweet as the alpenglow we experienced several years before from our sunrise camp at 12,000'. We were up early that morning and ready to set off on the final climb to the summit when suddenly the whole Sierra Crest lit up like this. Time seemed to stand still at that moment ... we could see others with headlamps who were already on their way up the switchbacks also stop to admire the show.
