Brief Directions: Take Highway 550 north from Silverton to county road 7 and trailhead parking is near the South Mineral Campground.
Best Season: Summer
Description: Clouds swirl around Golden Horn in the upper ice lakes basin. I hiked up to shoot the morning alpenglow on these peaks but instead spent three hours in the clouds hoping the sun would make an appearance. It never did but luckily I snapped a few shots before the clouds became too thick.
