This place is likely one of the most scenic areas close to my home. I am fortunate to live within an hour (with an easy border crossing experience) of Artist Point. This image was taken a few weeks ago on the same day as my earlier Picture Lake post.
Knight and Lady Peaks with Mt. Cheam on the right (also known as Cheam Peak). Mt. Cheam is a familiar sight to those who live in the Fraser Valley. This panorama was taken from the vantage point of Seabird Island between Aggasiz and Hope. I will try this shot again when the winter snow is on the peaks and maybe a bit less haze in the sky.

Mt. Shuksan and a still frozen Picture Lake. Almost exactly a year ago I in much the same location but the ice was off the lake already and there was little snow around. This year there is still much snow, the trail around Picture Lake is not accessible, and I bet I will have to wait until at least late July before getting up to Artist Point.
