I have good memories from this place. This is such a beautiful basin. My dog did both Harvard and Columbia in a day. I was very proud of him.
It definitely is a beautiful basin! I bet your dog was tired after! On our traverse we descended into the wrong basin, by accident, trying to avoid snow. Made for a very loose variation and added 3 hour to traverse :( But somehow even after that and the awful decent off of Columbia I still have great memories of that hike.
Anya stated about this being a great place. I need to also add that this is a great shot. I really like the inclusion of a person enjoying the view as it captures the way I often feel when i get to survey a mountain vista. Awe.
Thank you very much for your comment. Awe, no kidding, thats exactly how I feel when I'm in the mountains! There is no better place on earth:)
I love the way that the sun touches the land! It's so beautiful.
Thanks, it was something to see!
Nice photo. I wonder what this would look like as a merged panorama including the screen-shot to the left of the current photo. Gotta love alpine light!
