Archive Photo of the Day: Allan Dreyer, Artist


Allan Dreyer, Artist, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Allan Dreyer is a long-time volunteer at Mount Rainier, one of our most dedicated, who has helped the park in SO many capacities over the year: trail patrol, snowshoe walks, interpretive presentations, and most recently, painting. As you can see, Allan is a highly accomplished artist whose paintings of the park are gorgeous. I have three in my own home that I've purchased from him over the years. In 2008 he donated a large part of his collection for display in our offices, an act of incredible generosity. I took this portrait of him surrounded by his pictures on a snowy spring day; the light reflecting off the snow and in through the window made a nice softbox for the picture.
