In Memoriam

I did not think that I had met Ranger Margaret Anderson, despite our frequent visits to Mt. Rainier National Park. After all, there are hundreds of staff at the park. But in looking through files for another winter picture for tomorrow's blog post, I ran across this one. It's not the type of photo I usually take, but I was taking a photography class at the time, and the assignment that week was group photos. Returning from our snowshoeing trek that afternoon we encountered a group of rangers either setting out on patrol or just back from patrol. Margaret is the second from the left.

Memorial service for Margaret Anderson, a law enforcement ranger at Mt. Rainier National Park who was killed during a traffic stop at the park on New Year's Day, was held today at Pacific Lutheran University.
