Hiking Down Lassen

A solo hiker, dressed in classic hiking attire sporting a large beard, nearly to the parking area at the base of Mt. Lassen. On our hike to the top and back, we crossed paths with this solo hiker several times, and he looked as if he had stepped out of a 1970's era mountaineering catalog, with his large down jacket, jeans, leather boots, long hair and beard, and large ice axe. At the last moment before we filled our car with our gear (and my camera), the solo hiker turned the trail and I was able to capture this image. There is something introspective and simple about this photo that I very much enjoy
