Dent d'Herens from the Pointe Kurz lake

We were very surprised to find this beautiful lake on the summitridge of the Pointe Kurz. We waited an hour at the lake because of our fast ascent of the North Face.

This is too cool !

Think the words out that I don't speak German,
Dutch, or Hungarian, but I really like this photograph!

Does Spanish count?? (Gracias, amigo!)

Re: This is too cool !

Thank you Larry. In Dutch you can say something like "bedankt voor het plaatsen van deze foto" (thanks for posting this picture). I like it too! One of my favourites from my last holiday.

Greetz, Jurgen

Nice one

Nice picture! with the higher temperatures more of these lakes will start to exist I think...

Re: Nice one

Thanks Sander. I think the lakes are beautifull. So maybe this is the only positive result of the higher temperatures..?

Re: I thought ..

I was surprised too! Actually there's another lake between the Pointe Kurz and the Mont Brulé. This summer there also was a lake near the Gr. Bigerhorn (Mischabel Group). Never seen these lakes before..

Thanks, Jurgen
