“Traverse the alpine with epic views to a beautiful lake with icebergs tucked under cathedral walls.”— Jake Bramante
Features Birding · Lake · River/Creek · Spring · Swimming · Views · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife
You work your way along the Ptarmigan Wall towards the towering walls of the cirque. As you get closer, you enter into flower-covered meadows and a little pocket lake that makes you think you may be there. You continue along the trail and go over a little rise and the lake comes into view. Icebergs float in the lake throughout most summers. The vertical walls rise dramatically from the lake's opposite shores.
Brave souls jump into the water and swim to icebergs for bragging rights.
