Some people have favourite bars, pubs, even cities. I have a favourite glacier... well at least for now, it's receding There are 3 lakes to Joffre Peaks. The bottom lake, where in the distance you can see the peak (about 6.5 km away) The middle lake is about 4kms up. As you get higher, the lakes get more and more emerald green. They are actually very very green but it was an overcast day so it made a lot of my colours look gray-ish. It was also very very hard to take these pictures. Most of the time the sky blew out white at the same time as the trees going all black. I think that means I've actually truely hit the dynamic range limit... The top lake which is at the base of the glacier - or use to be at the base of the glacier, now the glacier is way up higher... The final picture is from standing below the glacier looking back at the entrance to the top lake - in the general direction of the bottom lake. I'd be able to see the bottom lake if I climbed up on to the ice, but I had no gear with me. I love this place, it's isolated, far away, it's peaceful. The 6km hike up through boulders, trees, snow, past bears, cougars, and other wild life keeps most people away. Of course, if you get yourself into trouble here... you're in serious trouble. You'd have to hike 1.5 hours back down, then drive another 45 minutes before you could even make a phone call.
