When Andy Porter captured this image of the north side of Rock Pass along the Pacific Crest Trail in Washington State's Pasayten Wilderness, it wasn't the first time he had marveled at the region's beauty. "Several years ago I traveled on the route as part of a long trip and vowed to return to this specific section," Porter says. "The sprawling meadows, interspersed with the trees and punctuated by the stark, craggy peaks, beckoned me to return." The photographer used a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with a Canon 15–85mm lens for the photo. "True wilderness is such a valuable commodity," Porter adds. "The peace and beauty of the Pasayten (or any wilderness, for that matter) is the essence of hopefulness."
