Lake 11,450. The following day I would be heading down this rocky chute, around the lake to the right, and towards Granite Bear Pass.
Looking back.... I'm close to the top of the chute with the highest of the Royce Lakes almost in view.
Several reflections shots follow, each with slightly varying light.
Drainage from the highest of the Royce Lakes at 11,800ft.
