Description

A September full moon and a crystal clear cold night set up the perfect conditions for this shot of Glacier Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. The mountain in the center of the photo is Glacier Peak. Glacier Lake is about 47 acres in size and is at 8166 ft, elevation. It is very rare to find the Lake smooth due to constant winds. Night and early morning provide the needed conditions.
