Hiking around Mount Rainier in 2003

There are certainly more beautiful photographs of Mount Rainier and the Wonderland Trail, but I like how well this one captured the minimalist nature of how I did it.

The ground sheet was my emergency bivy, the removable body-side cushion of the backpack was my sleeping pad, and the backpack serving as my foot rest contained a tarp that could be configured as a rain shelter should rain appear to be a possibility. I wore my mosquito headnet during the night so that insects wouldn't disturb my sleep despite the lack of a traditional tent.
