Return Traverse Of Upper Enchantments

Since it is coming up on almost a year since our trip to Washington I thought it wise to start finishing up these photos. This is our walk back towards Aasgard Pass through the Upper Enchantments, showing some of the area that I didn’t cover on our trip into the lakes.

The pink on the snow is snow algae, also called watermelon snow.

Going back through these photos makes me wish I was out adventuring somewhere. Maybe sometime later this summer or the fall.

    These photos look like they were taken on another planet- the pink snow, and that BLUE sky. Wow! Was it cold or is “watermelon snow” warm moss? I need to go read that Wikipedia entry.

    That flower is amazing- is that some sort of pollen or is that tiny little dots of green on the flower petal coloring? That is seriously cool!
