TDP Day #2: Hiking mountains and lakes

OK, prepare for lotsa pics of mountains and lakes and whatnot. Somewhere along here, we managed to cover 78 miles on foot. Fortunately, we didn´t calculate that mileage up front, or we might not have ventured the excursion. But we enjoyed a lovely beginning. After a 2 hour hike into the park the day before, we bathed in a glacier-fed stream, then slept in a rough campsite.

In the morning, we hiked old glacier moraines, now covered in trees, grass, and wildflowers. Every step took us closer to the unique peaks and revealed new surprises like this startlingly blue lake. (Sorry. Photo doesn´t do it justice...)
