Photographer's Note

Location: Beartooth Butte (elevation 10,500 ft) reflected in Beartooth Lake (elevation 8,9004 ft) at sunrise.

About the Photo: It was an unusually cold August morning when I shot this photo capturing the mornings first light on Beartooth Butte. The elevation of the place I camped at was 10,000 ft. (3,050 meters). When I got up I had to scrap ice off the windshield of my van. I hadn't expected my August trip to be so cold (I hadn't even expected to come here. I planned on staying in the Tetons, but during the trip I decided to make a side trip to Beartooth Pass). The only warm cloths I had were pants and a jacket. So I put on all the clothes I could and even put socks on my hands to keep them warm, which actually worked really well, but I must have looked pretty silly. I didn't matter though because I was the only person around.
