We recently decided that it was finally time again for a hike. So we got the kids in the car, a few friends to join us, and drove up to Blue Lake (close to Cascade, ID). Blue Lake really is a special place. Even though it is still very close to “civilization” you feel like you’re in the middle of the wildernis.

The trail takes you down the hill for just about a mile before you stand in front of the gorgeous deep blue of the lake. My son certainly had fun climbing the rocks (and splashing the water) while we all simply enjoyed to majestic panorama of the lake and the mountains surrounding us.

Capturing the incredibly blue water in black and white might seem odd but I like B&W too much for not at least giving it a try. 😉 Hope you enjoy these moments in the wild.
