Here is an image I captured earlier this month while in Mount Rainier for my first time. My buddies Jesse, Ben, Tyler, Ray, and a few others decided we were all going to hike up to what I thought was a wild flower meadow of epic proportions. I realized after we arrived at the top that it was in fact NOT a meadow of wildflowers but a partially frozen tarn.
After bushwhacking and hiking vertically off trail sometimes using my hands, I set out to find a composition, like a dog on a hunt. But being someone who has not much interest in tarns, I doubled back down a few hundred feet to a patch of Lupine and fuzzy, seed stage Pasque flowers, or as I like to call them, Yoda heads.
The light and lenticular clouds made for a very special memory for me. It was to be the best light of a 7 day trip, with almost 40 miles hiked and very, very little sleep.
