Our 1.5 mile hike through the darkness on the Taggart Lake trail started very early. Equipped with headlamps we made our way on the trail as the morning light slowly started to appear and slowly lift the darkness of the night. It was not a bad hike at all but not knowing the trail and being in complete darkness can be a bit exciting. When we finally arrived at the lake we pretty much were all in awe of the sights before us, a pristine calm lake reflecting the beautiful Teton range. As we were all scurrying around looking for locations I found this great tree jutting out into the water and made my way down to setup. I had a few shots from here but really liked this fisheye view when the golden sun started making it’s way over the horizon and spreading it’s golden light on the trees and the Tetons. This was a great location for sure, the reflections were amazing.
This was a different view of the lake, a pano giving a little more perspective of the beauty we all got to enjoy that morning. I am gearing up for an upcoming trip for some Aspen fall color on Rick Louis fall color tour coming up before you know it, looking forward to that adventure.
Thanks for stopping!

Pretty awesome as usual, Mike! That hike would make me a tad nervous, but worth it. Can’t wait for your fall color shots!
