Upper Titcomb Basin from Fremont Peak

As we descended Fremont Peak a storm continued to brew darkly over Titcomb Basin. Shortly before I arrived at the col by the base of the Southwest Buttress route a shaft of light broke through the clouds and illuminated Upper Titcomb and Summer Ice Lakes, and the surrounding peaks.

I had stashed my camera in my pack for the descent but quickly dropped the pack and retrieved it before the light went out, which it did moments later.

Re: Great!!

It sure was! The weather gods were on my side this day. I did have to move quickly to get my stashed camera but mother nature did everything else. The color on the upper lake was much more intense than this photo shows!
