– About Sagner’s National Geographic Your Shot “Off The Beaten Path” photo
“An incredibly beautiful day at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State, off the beaten path, but still wonderfully accessible. This is part of the Reflection Lakes area….named for obvious reasons as you can see from this photo, but for me it has the greater meaning of being a place that inspired peace and time for inner reflection.”

This is my second submission to the National Geographic Your Shot “Off The Beaten Path” assignment, a shot I took on a truly gorgeous day up at Reflection Lakes in the Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State. The park is huge with an untold number of off the beaten track places to hike and if you go midweek like I do, it’s easy to hike in and be pretty much alone. I am truly blessed in that although this is certainly a wilderness area, it’s a less than 2 hour drive from where I live….of course I live in the boonies! The day I took this photo I also hiked to Silver Falls and to Bench Lake (photo in my Your Shot gallery), a hike which required that I slide down the last part of the trail to the lake on my fanny, lol! No mean feat when holding onto a good sized camera and lens!
