Reflected Illusion

Reflections at Dad’s Lake create an interesting perspective in the early morning.  8/26/2017

Here’s a photo I took while hiking into the Titcomb Basin of the Wind River Range.  There were so many lakes to see along the way, each with its own unique view of the mountains!  While passing, I always find myself pondering about how much I wish to return to camp at each lake and take in its unique beauty from sunrise to sunset. 8/20/2017

Tetons with Snake River

Here’s a bit of a tribute to my photographer hero: Ansel Adams. I took 3 exposures to form a brighter image with the morning light. The photograph involved a very precarious early morning climb down a slope with my camera/tripod which made for some good fun! – Enjoy

This photo is from a slightly different location than where Ansel shot his infamous Tetons with Snake river photo (trees now block that spot) but it’s very close.  8/27/2017

Kearsarge Lakes

An 18-mile day of hiking led us to our destination of the day: Kearsarge Lakes.  I just sat down for my freeze-dried meal when it started to hail.  Luckily the hail was short lived and I was able to watch the sunset with my well earned dinner as the trout began their dusk feeding frenzy.  Life on the JMT!
