15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Beautifiul Miter Basin of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California.

I captured this scene while on a multi-day backpacking trip in the Miter Basin of Sequoia National Park in California. There's not trail into the basin and it takes about two days of hiking to get to.
