...and that little lake on the right is Pacific Tarn, certified highest altitude lake in the US (all of North America?) at 13,400'. I'd always wondered how much of the year it was actually liquid. Looks like this is the season for it. Nice pic.

Sure is. I climbed Pacific about 3 weeks ago and it was still partially frozen. It's a really cool thing to see.
