Keep going there’s still more!
First day of a three day trip so I planned to keep it pretty easy, at least that was the thought…
Overall this hike is not very hard but the trail had at least an inch of packed ice on it, and with out spikes up hill took twice as long.
I also discovered that there is a beautiful backcountry campground beside upper twin lake that I will hopefully be able to get back to next summer.
One of the main benefits of shooting mid-day is that you can get some really interesting black and white shots like this. The harsh light creates very strong contrast and in a location like this the contrast between the snow and rock is what makes this shot work.

Frozen waterfalls, probably the coolest thing about winter in the mountains. I always love finding spots like this in late fall where you’ve got a frozen falls and liquid lake.

The funny part about this picture is that I would never have noticed it if I hadn’t be interrupted while shooting Castle Mountain. I was in the bed of my truck staying focused on Castle Mountain when a couple gentle men in an RV came up an asked me a bunch of questions and when I turned around to answer them I saw this view and nearly jumped!
