Photographer's Note

This was taken on our last foray into the National Park. We drove to the Carbon River entrance and then up an unmade road for 17 miles. Fortunately we were in a 4 wheel drive as the road was so bad; steep drops part of the way too. Eventually in a blaze of dust we arrived at Mowich Lake. We walked along the lake and through the forest to Eunice Lake. There were some quite strenuous stretches uphill and when we arrived at Eunice Lake the mosquitoes decided it was dinnertime; we had some attractive, itchy, red lumps to prove it. The trail actually goes about another mile further with 1000ft elevation gain to Tolmie Peak Lookout. I can imagine the wonderful views but we really didn’t have the time, bearing in mind the 17 mile unmade road, so returned the way we came.
This photo was taken with my back to Eunice Lake, also my back to Tolmie Peak (again imagine the view!). From this viewpoint you can see the highest point of Mount Rainier, Columbia Crest. The white flowers in the foreground are called beargrass; apparently as long as the flowers aren’t eaten there are no bears in the vicinity! It was very bright sunlight so I adjusted the exposure by -1
Very little PP just curves.
