Backpacking Wonder

This is one of my favorite images from a recent backpacking trip to the Russian Wilderness in the Klamath Mountains. We caught a break in the weather during this January "winter." It's a very dry year. A local we ran into said "we should have ten feet of snow right now." I would love to return some day to see that! My brother served as my model/subject this trip as we explored the area that included frozen lakes and beautiful skylines.
