15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Indepence Day at Blue Creek Cabin

For decades, an extended ranching family who's grandparents tamed the forest have been celebrating Independence Day in the forest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most live in the Foothils, 40-50 miles down in the heat of summer and enjoy cooling off with family and friends to socialize on the 4th.
