Photographer's Note

A man plods onward in freezing temperatures toward the black, gargantuan hulk of Mt. Blanshard. He turns to me warily as I approach, eyes riveted on my dangling camera. He tells me he is birdwatching. His real mission though is to seek the solitude of the mountain and lakeside trails. He is gruff, bearded and friendly, but relieved that I do not follow him further toward the mountain. I let him go, watching his frame slowly disappear in the distance. The silence of the wilderness touches the soul.
