There is something other worldly when you get to view the colours of the lakes and streams that are fed from glaciers, and should be sought out if you are anywhere close......

We were here late one evening and early one morning. Both experiences were peaceful and beautiful but different. The light changes, the birds change and the reflections change. Since the road getting here is so narrow you don't have to be concerned about hoards of bus people. One of my favorite pictures of our trip is from here

Brilliant photography spot for amateurs and pros. Highly recommended. Take a few minutes off the beaten path for great results

the day we visited the clouds were sitting below the tops of the mountains and the view was amazing. My husband loves taking photos - we were there for a while!
