This beautiful alpine lake lies nestled in a spectacular steep-walled cirque. Mt. Wilbur (9,321-ft.), to the south, and Iceberg Peak (9,146-ft.), to the west, soar over 3,000-ft. above the lake’s aquamarine waters. Ice floes, calved from snowfields along the lake’s western shore, often last well into the summer and in some years still bob along the lake’s surface in early fall. Photo © copyright by Ed Fuhr.
