  1. It looks like those bigger boulders in the foreground might have rock tripe lichens on them.

    • They definitely had something on them…some were black, others orange….

  2. Wow, stunning photo. The Rockies are so inspiring as their vastness and grandness make you think in a different way. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, Pal Guy…and yes, the mountains do cause you to think in a different way…changes your perspective a bit.

  3. Very nice Scott. Looks like maybe a good spot for a bit of scree running.. 😉

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…I was more comfortable on this scree than others that I’ve mentioned…I could often see the ground beneath the rocks and boulders…didn’t think I was going to get sucked under!

  4. Always amazing to stumble onto those hidden pools.

    • Yes, it is, CJ…beautiful and unexpected treasures.

  5. Great pairing/echoing of the rocks’ texture and the shimmer on the water’s surface — beautiful.

    • Thank you, Rona…there was a nice breeze up there, so I didn’t have to wait too long for that shimmer between shots. 🙂

  6. Beautiful scene of your taller mountains…. 😉 Can’t help but think about Chillbrook’s scree running, seems like you’d end up in the lake. Could be a good thing if it’s hot enough.

    • Yes, my taller mountains…. 😉 And yes, the scree-running sounds compelling…for a moment…and the water was quite chilly.

    I like the perspective the people in the foreground bring to the picture. Those surely are some big rocks 🙂

    • Yes, Nate…huge rocks…and the people do help with the perspective thing…. 🙂

  10. Sigh. those pines really stand out nicely. They are very stately.

    • Big sigh from me, too…and I agree, the pines are rather stately, standing out against all of that rock.
