Turns out that August 2009 was a pretty great month for pictures. It started with an amazing sunset at Sparks Lake, but there was also this memorable sunrise.
The trek to Broken Top’s glacial lake is one of the best bang-for-your-buck hikes around. It’s only about four miles, and there are only a couple steep sections. In fact, you might be more exhausted by the incredibly bumpy five-mile drive to the trailhead from Todd Lake.
The mountain itself is spectacular, but the glacial lake constantly changes at sunrise, as icy surfaces crack and icebergs float around the water.
