Jeff Morrison says this photo is an original picture taken of Indian Henrys Hunting Ground at Mount Rainier. If you look close you can see the white tents.

Here is some information from The Big Fact Book About Mount Rainier:

“At Indian Henrys Hunting Ground, form 1908 to 1915, George Hall and his wife, the former Sue Longmire, had a [] tent camp. A government bulletin from 1912 listed prices at $.75 for a bed or a weekly rate of $15.00 for bed and board. You could have your freight hauled up from Longmire for $.02 per pound. This camp, known as the “Wigwam Hotel” rivaled the one a Paradise in popularity (Camp in the Clouds), however it was severn miles of hard hiking to get there. It was abandoned in 1915.”
