Description

I hiked into Kings Canyon National Park from the east side for the first time this past summer. I knew that there were lakes below Kearsarge Pass, so I was hoping to get some reflections. Unfortunately, when I reached the lakes, the winds were just strong enough that most of the lakes had ripples, and, thus, no reflections. But I noticed that there was a wind-sheltered outlet between the first and second lakes where the water was reliably calm. So, I navigated toward that area--crossing a creek in the process--and balanced on some rocks in the water to get this image. I got my reflections, after all--and got some interesting foreground objects in the frame as well.
