I enjoy all your photos. But you certainly were at the right place at the right time for this one!

Thanks! This is my happy place that I dream of a lot this time of year. Yes, it is just above Thousand Island Lake in the Ansel Adams Wilderness along the JMT/PCT. Such an awesome area right there with Thousand and Garnet Lakes and Ritter and Banner to play on in the background! It tends to be a crowded area in peak season, though, but it doesn't bother me much.

Lol yep most of you have a major jump on me with exploring the Sierra. I am trying for around 130 days this summer. If I do that I will have spent 1 whole year out of the last 4 years in the Sierra. :p
