This photo was captured at the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island in Washington. The island is less than 10 miles across the Puget Sound from Seattle. The reserve was founded by Prentice and Virginia Bloedel. They had a keen interest in creating a space to foster conservation while allowing visitors to find tranquility and peace through nature. The Asian influences throughout the reserve are palpable. In 1963, the well known poet, Theodore Roethke, drowned in the reserve’s swimming pool, which now serves as the sand Zen garden.
