I took this photo during my 5-day backpacking trip in High Sierra: from Onion Valley to Rae Lakes. My team of 8 hiked about 40 miles, including going through tough Glen Pass 11798 ft (3596 m) and Kearsarge Pass 11760 ft (3550 m)

This was taken at our first evening near Flower Lake. I walked around lake at evening - and took a number of macro shots with frogs and flowers. The whole trip was amazing, opening my eyes at beauty of high mountains filled with dozens and dozens of alpine lakes...It was not easy to carry a 40-pound backpack and climb high elevation passes while the air is so thin, but it was worh the effort and I surely will return here again.
