Just over a month ago, on the 1st January 2012, a park ranger was shot and killed at Mt Rainier National Park. Margaret Anderson was just 34 when she was killed. She left behind a husband (also a park ranger at Mt Rainier) and two young children. The person responsible for her death was found dead the following day. He died from exposure during the night.

I did not know Margaret Anderson, and I can only imagine the pain and suffering her family must have gone through. I’ve visited Mount Rainier National Park on a number of occasions, always with my camera close at hand. It’s an incredibly beautiful place. Margaret Anderson was working to keep it that way. I wanted to dedicate the next 7 images to Margaret and her family. May she rest in peace and her spirit watch over everyone that visits the mountain.
