Black Kaweah and Great Western Divide from Columbine Lake

Pretty Alpenglow from Columbine Lake, August 20, 2006. Black Kaweah peeks through Hands-and-Knees Pass, ominously devoid of alpenglow.

So Beautiful

Very beautiful Alpenglow color! Like copper. I love the bit of reflection from the lake. The peaks of the Great Western Divide sure are beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

Re: So Beautiful

Thanks, appreciate the kind words. We had a precious few minutes of this intense alpenglow. We took the looong way out of Big Arroyo, and were planning to get back to Mineral King, but I pooped out at Columbine Lake. Gee, what a terrible place to stop. ;-) Kind of sheds some perspective on all that rushing around--what exactly was I rushing back to?
