I'm more afraid that this guy is going to hit the stone underwater than the temperature itself !

The water is about 10 feet deep there, no risk of hitting the rock!

We were lucky to find that spot. We had camped about 1/2 mile away and had just started hiking for the day when we came upon the tarn. One look, and we dropped our packs. Spent the whole day and night there.

Wow that's awesome, that what I would do. If I ever get to this area I may ask you for more detailed location. Amazing.

I won't tell you where it is located, but I will tell you that that's the north face of Mount Huxley in the reflection (Evolution Group, Sierra Nevada).
