In early August I had the opportunity to spend five nights (six days) backpacking in the Trinity Alps Wilderness of Northern California, about five hours north of San Francisco. It was beautiful, peaceful, meditative, and at points exhausting.
Though I took many photos (which I am still sorting) this is one of my favorites. It is the reflection of morning clouds on Diamond Lake, while waiting for the coffee water to boil. I was captivated by the blue of the sky, the puffs of white from the clouds, and the green of the grass fresh from the dew of the morning.
