In this image, the silhouette of '20s mountaineer Thomas G. Hermans approaches a Paradise Glacier ice cave in Washington State's Rainier National Park. According to the University of Washington Libraries
, the park "drew thousands of hikers and mountaineers from all around the world to the mountain's major attractions, including summit climbs and excursions to its famous glaciers and ice caves." A photographer from Tacoma photography studio Ranapar Studio (very likely an abbreviation for Rainier National Park), originally founded by Seattle photographer Asahel Curtis
, collected images from the park in an album dated 1923-1931.
