    Friday's forecast was for sun and a high in the low 50s so I decided to take advantage of the good weather (before winter returned over the weekend). I decided to drive up the North Cascades Highway to its winter closure point near Diablo Lake.

    1. Skagit River and Eldorado Mountain from Milepost 100.

    4. From the overlook, I started to experiment with a new purchase: some Cokin P series ND Grad filters. Here's a stacked 0.6 + 0.9 ND soft edge along with a circular Polarizer. I was pleased at the time I took it but now I'm kinda put off by the purple-ish tint that's present in the sky.

    5. Harsh mid-day light limited my options but I soon found interest in the many icicles from snowmelt found in the sheltered areas along the highway...

    8. I really liked the contrast between the color of the ice and the greens from the moss..
