"Among the many un-looked-for treasures that are bound up and hidden away in the depths of Sierra solitudes, none more surely charm and surprise all kinds of travelers than the glacial lakes. The forests and the glaciers and the snowy fountains advertise their wealth in a more or less telling manner even in the distance, but nothing is seen of the lakes until we have climbed above them. All the upper branches of the rivers are fairly laden with lakes, like orchard trees with fruit." -John Muir

There are roughly 1,000 named glacial lakes in the Sierra Nevada. Many others are identified by their elevation, and countless have no names at all.
