Frozen Lake


"Where'd we stash the scuba gear"?

“Picnicking” @ White River.  “Where’d we stash the scuba gear?”

White River.  (What else would you call water like this?)

Just out of frame to the left is Frozen Lake.  We'd have taken another photo if we could've felt our fingers at this point.

The way back – or where we’ve been.  Frozen Lake is just out of the frame to the left.

We would’ve taken another photo if we had any feeling left in our fingers at this point.

  1. Wow, the snow really didn’t melt this summer at all! Last year when we were up here at Sunrise we thought we were going to die of heatstroke! That was last July. There were no clouds in the sky and like you said, no cover from the elements! I’ll never forget it for the heat… Isn’t that funny? This Friday night we will stay at Paradise Lodge-I guess they close in a few days for the winter. When we went to Paradise at the end of July we could not go hiking anywhere on upper elevations and even at Paradise all the trails were covered by feet of snow! It was warm though. So we’ll see how it is Friday night, it might snow on Friday night! The kids would like that….
    Thanks for sharing this funny story!
