Archive Photo of the Day: Indian Henry's Pond


Indian Henrys Pond, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
For many years, this was my favorite photograph, not just for the fantastic image itself but for the experience behind it. Kelli and I went hiking to Indian Henry's Hunting Ground in Mount Rainier National Park in September of 1999, a summer following an extremely heavy snow winter. In a month when usually the final bloom is fading from the last flowers, there were avalanche lilies blooming in places on the high meadows. I've never seen a September day so gorgeous. I took this image using slide film across the little tarn in front of the backcountry patrol cabin.
