There was everything but snow during last weekend’s hike. The autumn leaves have pretty much all fallen off by now… I reckon winter is on its way to Alaska.
Those fresh snow on the mountain tops, and a hint of baby blue in the sky. It is just so breathtakingly beautiful, isn’t it? I hope the weather will hold up for a bit longer as I am not ready to stop hiking just yet.
I stood steady on the mountain top as the sun shinning in the sky… ❤
The colors of autumn are absolutely spectacular at the Upper Trail Lake!
I’m grateful that I got few good moments before it stared to rain again and then losing the good light, and clearer reflections on the lake. I actually left the village, but about I was 10 miles out, I turned around as I just couldn’t leave without trying to see more of the lake… even it meant in the rain. So when I drove back, parked my car; then changed to my rain gear, and put on my rain boots. There I went.
I know I may not be rewarded with a stunning view like this on every single of my second attempts while exploring an unfamiliar area… but I think not giving up in term of finding a satisfying frame until I tried my best is the way to explore with my camera! Plus I’ve always been pleasantly surprised so far.
It was pouring so hard just now… and it felt like a storm was on its way (I was so excited for a moment)… But the storm did not come and it is calm now.
This does not happen often, but I do love the sound of rain once in a blue moon… some lovely music… candle light… going through past photos… my travel bugs are attacking me now.
Perhaps I should go spend some time with the map and find some lovely hidden places along my next big road trip for me to dream away. Goodnight dreamers! =)
