Does everyone know that if you click on the photos with a border around it you can see a higher resolution version?

TB with a few more flowers in that meadow I'd feel like singing the thyme song of
"Sound of Music", but then again with my voice I'd better not.

Never got past Benson on this trip (Late September 2006, a great snow year). Though I've also been down Kerrick Canyon I've never been over Seavey. You could have also encountered me in Sugarloaf/Roaring River in the 80s. I was little thinner and hair much darker then. I'll have to scan some photos from back then.

Late to the party, but I'm sure I have one or two lake pictures lying around...

Edit: forgot to say where this is! It's the westernmost Swamp Lake on the Monarch Divide.
