382 Mendenhall Glacier 2.jpg

It was hot, very hot as I hiked along the shore of Mendenhall Lake.  How could this be?  I'm in Alaska next to a glacier yet I feel like I'm in California!  Even the wildflowers were brilliant, more so than I had remembered from my last trip to Alaska.<br />

	The dwarf fireweed called my artistic side to include these beautiful flowers with the glacier.  I lowered my tripod until the glacier and flowers almost touched and the reflection of the lake, on such a calm day, doubled the image of  the Mendenhall Glacier.
