One of our favorite places to visit with Mount Rainier National Park's Camping Adventures with My Parents (CAMP) program is Narada Falls--especially on a hot day, when the mist from the waterfall drifting out over the viewpoint gives you an exquisite opportunity to cool off. In fact, the hardest part about this spot is getting good pictures without the camera lens disappearing into a cloud of distorting water droplets! I had already been down to the lower viewpoint, then returned to the upper viewpoint and dried off my camera lens, when this young woman walked up, drenched from the spray and playing absently with her wildly disarrayed hair. No posing here: I saw the shot and snapped it, capturing a great experience in mid-moment.
While we're at Narada Falls, here's another shot at the viewpoint, taken two weeks later with another CAMP group, this time of Outreach Intern Hilary Gaddis of the Student Conservation Association.
