Descending Mt Rainier
by Joel Schenk
For me climbing mountains has always yielded some nice images, and our time spent on Mt. Rainier was no acception. We had summitted via the Kautz glacier on July 8th and ended up camping on top thinking that we would leave in the morning. Mother Nature had other intentions though as the weather turned for the worst, and the 3 of us were packed in our tent like sardines for 36 hours waiting for the blizzard to break. When we finally were able to descend, we choose the Emmons glacier and this was taken shortly after sunrise at an elevation of over 12,000.
Equipment: Olympus 8080 Wide Zoom
Outdoorsy type that likes to carry a camera around. Hopefully when nature presents itself on those special occations, I can capture a few frames.
