Photos taken on a backpacking trip with girlfriends into the Eagle Cap Wilderness during August 2006. The heaviest single item I had in my pack was the camera.
Meadow and mountains on day two hike
Following the trail up...
Through the wildflowers the trail winds...
Into a glacial drainage, climbing the meandering trail.
Up to the glacier bridge.
Looking back to where we've traveled
Mountain meadow above the glacial bridge
Tree atop a granite hill with indian paintbrush and other alpine flora
Alpine flower, close-up
Indian paintbrush and yellow columbine
High alpine meadow below the granite walls of the Eagle Cap wilderness valley
Sunlight glows through a butterfly's wings as it alights on the purple mountain flowers.
Ominous clouds over horseshoe lake
High above the treeline of the Eagle Cap Valley -- hiked up to horseshoe lake, now time to hike back down.
