Aqua Waters, Glacial Expression


the journey began
with a two boat
two lake ride
with a hike in between lakes
that took me deeper into the mountains before i began my hike

climbed high above Grinnell Lake
the gorgeous glacial lake above
(actually there are three lakes in the photo)


up up up


past waterfalls:

to 
Upper Grinnell Lake:


a lake with summer icebergs

found this gorgeous critter:


here are the icebergs
(sorry, I was shooting into the sun):


the rocks along the trail 
were colorful
rich in movement and design made by glaciers


a hike that I certainly recommend

    1. hello Lynne,

      it was such a beautiful four days
      the weather was right and i hit the road
      since the snow has come to the high mountains, might melt some or all of it
      but that was a perfect window to wander and explore
      Montucky told me in the comments that the chipmunk looking critter is a Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel. I had never seen or heard of one before.
