Mitchell Lake

Jonah and I attempted to go on a hike to Long Lake, in the Indian Peaks Wilderness area several weeks ago, but the rangers said that there was still too much snow in the area. They said, for example, that there was a 12-foot drift of snow at Mitchell Lake. So we decided to go there, instead.
That's Jonah, standing on top of the snow; Mt. Audabon is in the background. For comparison, here is a photo from more or less the same spot, taken in September 2004. Much less snow in September.
