Another photo from a recent backpacking trip in the Payette National Forest in Idaho. My home. Just processing the photos makes me want to run for the hills again! Hope you enjoy it and thanks for taking a look.
The positive end to this lake is no trail. It tends to keep the masses out, but it is not unknown for the most part. There are tons of hidden lakes in this area. If you pursue the frank church wilderness of idaho, you may not see another soul for days if not weeks. Most of the lakes around here lack real photography as well. Most images you find of idaho lakes are done with point and shoot cameras & shot in mid-day etc. It is open to some major photo opportunity. I often take it all for granted and focus on other places of the west instead of right here at home. There is some beautiful scenery around here and much of it is untainted by human activity. Worth checking out for sure.
Well A change of scene is due for me, need to submerge myself into some high alpine lakes and mountains. I'd love to really see Idaho and not just drive through it, I loved just looking out the window at all the wide open space that seems to never end until the mountains.
Yeah, a change is due for me as well. I recently decided to move to Bishop, CA this fall for a while. Get out of the snow.. The winters are so brutally long here anymore. I am looking forward to some warmer climate and the vast array of scenery the bishop area has to offer. I am pretty excited about it. It will be great to hang with Nolan too. He has done a lot to talk me into getting out of here for a while. I need it!
Yes, it does but not much. Only a couple miles away it snows a ton. It will be nice to get the best of both worlds. Being so close to so many scenic areas, deserts to mountains. I can understand where you are coming from. I wouldn't like the heat either. You live in Tuscon area?
