Sunrises over the Cascade Mountains — when it’s not too overcast, of course — can illuminate one of the most beautiful Pacific Northwest scenes.

This morning was no exception.

Seattle Times photographer Mike Siegel, working early, captured the vibrant, orange-yellow evidence to prove it in case you were still snoozing, or stuck indoors like me.

Thanks, Mike, from all of us.
