Not everyone will agree with this statement, but I believe there are no such things as an accident. I never really planned on hiking all the way to Upper Ice Lake Basin as I met another photographer while hiking up and she said that the Lower Ice Basin had a lot more wildflowers and that the upper was a flop and wasnâ€™t worth the mile hike up and another 1000â€™ elevation gain. Maybe a combination of being tired and thirsty, but I missed the lower basin all together and just continued on up to the upper portion. I am really glad I did, as I wouldnâ€™t have been able to see this sunset hidden behind all the mountain ranges. I think all the elements came together that night & I feel very fortunate to be at the right place at the right time.
