When I woke this morning and looked out the balcony doors I knew if was deja vu all over again. Then when the sun showed up that deja vu was confirmed. The smoke index was high and I could smell it and could see not much at all. It would be a day of focusing on what was right under our noses. We had a plan in place and mid morning began to execute that plan.
Lake Five was the first lake for us and I went for the reflection shot.
One thing about the smoke conditions, we were afforded dramatic views.
We spent some time at the Third Lake.
We could get close to it and the green hues were pretty.
lots to reflect on today

We carried on to the next and to where we could admire the scenery from different angles. We were warned about a grazing black bear on the slope to our right. We continued on checking out to our right. Little did we know......
...it had crossed the trail and was now swimming in the Lake.
enjoying our picnic
I have been craving color which has been absent from our views.
I created a view which had limited satisfaction.
Yet it was a feast for my fuel need.
Annette Lake was an inviting spot to spend some time. My friend went for a swim to cool off. I chose to practice photo taking. This is late afternoon but looks like late evening early night. I played with the camera settings and was happy to see this was the outcome.
We had much success today when it came down to it.
It was more of the unexpected that made our day.
Jasper I will be back!
