The Loch at Dawn
It was early fall and I had decided to hike up to Andrews Glacier in Rocky Mountain National Park. I started up the trail in the pre-dawn darkness but by the time I reached The Loch, one of the many glacial lakes in the area, the sun had begun to rise. At the western edge of the lake I came across a break in the forest that provided me with this magnificent view to the east. The sun itself was hidden behind a low bank of clouds but its diffuse glow was enough to highlight the subtle ripples on the lake's otherwise mirror-smooth surface.
