A Hike to Lake Blanche. Part 2, at the lake (SX50)

This set was taken at the mid point of my hike, at or near lake Blanche.

Another shot of the twin Dromedary peaks. The old dead white pine in the center is massive., love that old tree.

Looking down the canyon into the Salt Lake Valley.

Another view of my favorite tree.

Sundial peak, and Lake Blanche. Lake Blanche it the first in a chain of 3 lakes. I didn't photograph the other 2 on this hike, as the trail was lost in the blowing snow and I didn't want to put on the snowshoes to get to the other 2.

The end of the trail for me, was at the top of the hill. Very cold and windy up here.

Another shot of Sundial peak.

Shadows and trees.

Sundial peak.

Sundial peak.

Buried spruce trees.

Looking down into the Salt Lake Valley. You can see the Great Salt Lake and Antelope Island on the distant horizon (mid upper left).

Thanks for looking. Stand by for part 3 on the way down.
