This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features Sunlight dapples the shoulders of Algonquin and Wright, two of the more than 40 so-called High Peaks that rise above 4,000 feet. Once blighted by logging and industry, the region has undergone a renaissance of woods and waters. See more pictures from the September 2011 feature story "Forever Wild."
