a closer detail of what i am now calling the 'Mayan' Peaks... ;) taken much much later on the same day (after a good 4 hour nap to recover from the successful but exhilarating hike to Blueberry Mountain). in fact, by the time i got up to continue snapping shots of this amazing and mystical valley, it was already late evening, and the light was getting quite soft. at the time of this shot, the sun was behind the mountain range to the south, but not yet below the unseen, distant horizon. it would have been just abut 10PM -- but due to the long post summer days, it wouldn't be completely dark for another 2 hours. once again, as i prepped my camera, i reveled in finding myself completely alone, yet completely enthralled, on the edge of civilization -- at the ends of the earth, in a beautifully translucent, tranquil, Arctic twilight.
