Rock Climbing Photos : Topo : Early morning sun over glacial lake

Early morning sun over glacial lake

Early morning sun over glacial lake

This slide was taken in the early morning hours after a 20 km hike in the previous day. This lake lies in the Cordillera Blanca, south of Huascaran. I forget the name of the peaks around the lake, and the specific lake name, but I'll do some checking. It was one of 2 lakes and a large piece of Huascaran del Norte that flattened the town of Yungay in 1970 after a massive earthquake, killing more than 50,000 people. Absolutely beautiful scene this day, with nobody around except my friends and myself, surrounded by four 6000 meter peaks. Heaven on earth? Quite possibly.
