Once Upon a Rock
Wasatch Mountains, Utah, USA
Late spring, early summer capture high in the Wasatch Mountains on a hike to Lake Blanche, nestled at the base of Sundial Peak. The lake bed was anciently home to a glacier once upon a rock on this shoreline. Glacial scars are prominently visible in this shot.
Although the sky was boring (no clouds), the sun provided a gentle, soft light, creating an incredible warm glow.
This hike is not for car-shooters. It is a grueling 3.3 miles one-way up with a 2,700 foot (823m) gain! Thanks to friend and photographer, Steve Howa, who came along as my guide!
