Very nice

John, what time of year was this photo taken? Last time I was in the area it was early July a few years back and Blue Lake was still iced over. Yankee Boy Basin was still very full of snow. You have some tremendous photos in your portfolio -- nice job.

Re: Very nice

Thanks John - This was taken 9-8-07. It's a good time of year to avoid thunderstorms also (if planning on a long day).

Very nice photo. I am adding your photo to my "Moutain Lakes" album.

Nice shot, John. Your best, IMO, from your recent group of postings. It's simply oozing with color!

Taken during your ascent of S4?

Re: Fantastic!

Thanks Ryan. It is such a photogenic peak. This was on the way back down after finishing up the day, about halfway between the upper basin and Blue Lakes. It was a pleasing sight to behold after a fairly intense set of peaks ("T 0", "S 5", "S 6", and "S 4").
