Description

The Enchantments are one of the most beautiful and unique locations in the Pacific Northwest, and one of the hardest permit lotteries to win in the country. Luckily, some friends and I were able to get out and make the trek through the Enchantments this October, just in time to see the larches in the peak color. This view is from high above Inspiration lake - quite a fitting name I thought, while watching this colorful sunset.
