13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Muir's Window

This photo was taken during a thru-hike of the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, USA. The Sierra Club built this small stone hut at the top of Muir Pass in the 1930's as a shelter for travelers because Muir Pass is known for sudden storms. This small window shows the view North of the pass. This photo represents sustainable travel because this hut has been serving the needs of travelers, all of whom arrive by horse or foot, for the past 80 years. The impact it has on the environment is minimal and it serves the needs of the public for safe shelter. Plus, you can't beat that view out the window of the Sierra Wilderness.
