I remember this creek from my hike of Redcloud and Sunshine in 2004. The stream was just incredibly beautiful, almost as striking as the scenery way above it. Thanks for adding this; you caught the colors nicely.
There is another similar on the approach to Wetterhorn, I beleive it is the calcium that makes it silvery-white. In This Photo there is a tributary of bright red water entering Silver Creek, I believe it is filled with Iron, even the rocks around the waters pick up the colors!.
This picture was one of the reason we did Sunshine and Redcloud. Unfortunately, we didn't have the best photography weather. Nice shot!
Thanks alot man. It is a really cool area.
