Mount Si


On the eastern end of the most heavily-populated county of Washington State, prominent Mount Si (pr. “Sigh") rises roughly 4,000 feet off the valley floor of the Snoqualmie River. Named for Josiah "Uncle Si" Merritt, an early settler, Mount Si marks the beginning of the Cascade Range as seen from Interstate 90 as you travel east into the range. Its prominence evokes your attention.



Mount Si, November 23, 2008

It is a fascinating mountain. What strikes most people about Mount Si is its abrupt rocky face. I especially like photographing it in the late in the afternoon when it is fully illuminated by sunlight. This mountain has many different looks. Mount Si takes on different appearances depending upon angle of sunlight, time of year, and weather. I began photographing Mount Si this only in the past three years, even though I have lived close by for more than 20 years, a testament to the abundance of subject matter the Pacific West Coast of America has to offer.
