Photographer's Note

This photo was taken hiking in the Gallatin Range in Southwestern Montana, the morning after the first snow of the season. This is Emerald Lake, and after a 5 1/2 mile hike, we gradually encountered snow on the trail, leading to this scene as we came up to the lake at about 8,000 ft. It is surrounded by these mountains as they gradually close in around the lake.
