About This Image

After an 8 mile hike (part of 16 miles) we stopped to capture a brewing thunder storm. This was definitely a breathtaking scene. I wish I would have had a panorama camera because there was much more. I have this image blown up on my desktop and the large version is even more exciting. I was really pleased with the timing here.

This was one of my favorite hikes. I can't believe it's been 4 years since we hiked there. We should try and make it back up there soon.

I kept looking for an apple tree. *LOL* Beautiful picture. The lake so placid and then the impish waterfall with its pure white water pouring down over the rocky mountain side! A great picture!!

Reminds me of my old home in Colorado. Why oh why did I ever leave there? Excellent shot, as usual.

Looks good

If you can find time to camp in this area and you have the ability to hike in with a pack you will not be disappointed. It was beautiful. Make sure to take your camera, your pole, and your rain fly. I also remember it being called Blue Lake. You have to keep going and going until you are at the top of the mtn. Good luck!

This lake is 8 miles down the trail starting at Mirror Lake in the Uinta mountains. I believe this one is called Blue Lake, but I could be mistaken. There were several lakes in the area. This hike took Pacuman and I all day, and I almost got dyhydrated on the way back so I risked getting sick and drank the stream water. Luckily, I didn't get giardia and we made it back. I was extremely sore the next day, but it was worth it. Next time, however, I'm going to take my gear and sleep overnight. Doing it all in one day doesn't allow for any time to explore or fish (which there are ample of in those lakes and streams).

Guest - Aug 19, 2004 02:36 PM EDT
it makes me want to go camping, and just stay away from any city. I love the picture.
Guest - Aug 19, 2004 02:34 PM EDT
This picture personifies the outdoors. This is the place that people can only dream of. I have been though the wasatch mountains and this captures the beauty of them.

I love the waterfall in the foreground.
Guest - Jul 18, 2004 04:13 PM EDT
Very nice angle! It has just about every nice element of landscape photography, a waterfall, a lake, trees, mountains, rain, clouds... I think this one has everything.
