A deer feeds in the high country of Olympic National Park

Alpine meadows, dense forests, snow-capped peaks, these factors define the highlands of Olympic National Park. The park's vast expanse of roadless wilderness overflows with life, and lugging my camera gear up the switchbacks and down the snowpack, I was constantly wondering how I could capture it all in a frame. After the scouting, the planning, and the dodging of hundreds of other travelers, the scene in front of me played out in a way I never could have imagined. ⠀
