A road accesses Lake Mary, however in the winter, one must snowshoe or ski beyond Twin Lakes, because the road is not snow plowed beyond there.
The craggy mountains in the background are part of the Mammoth Crest, which is within the John Muir Wilderness, protected from future development and containing many high Sierra Nevada hiking trails. One may go beyond Lake Mary for a one day round trip saunter into the wilderness. Or one may backpack and adventure deeper into Nature's wonderland of geological temples.

A new post, a first comment of an impresive place, lake and mountains and its reflections
Like the POV of the shore well taken in a diagonal and more, a good place to made some hiking enjoying the landscape
Well done, regards

This is a spectacular scene, with the lake softly reflecting the shapes of the snow-capped mountains.
The sky makes a strong statement, both in reality and as a reflection.
I wondered how you would feel about cropping a little of the shot, to remove some of the featureless f/g, which tends to remove some attention from the spectacular scenery. A crop gives the scene a much more panoramic effect. I have done a w/s to explain my reasoning. I hope you like it.
My warm regards,

Hello Ray - The minute I saw the blue and white in the TN I had to check the big picture. What a big picture it is too, the landscape with its richness of colour and contrast is wonderful. Pristine wilderness has an eternal feel and appeal. A fine, uplifting shot.
