The hand of man

There is a tremendous amount of artwork and artifacts to be uncovered throughout the Wilderness Lodge. From carvings of Duane Pasco, to the portraits of Charles Bird King and McKinney-Hall, the era of exploration and indigenous population of the West is well represented throughout the lobby, guest rooms, hallways and dining areas of the resort. Yet, for me, there is no better window in the life of a people or individual than a photograph.

Even in posing, it says something of an individual. Pride can be seen in a stiff stance, while a wide smile, even in harsh conditions, can show a person who is at peace and happy with their life. That is why, when I explore the Wilderness Lodge, I make sure to take a little extra time to examine each photograph I find. Here are a few of my favorites.
