Mt Silcox (8)

One last look around from on top, a brief stop at the lakes and a couple glances back up the trail and my posts about Mount Silcox, the Goat Lakes and Trail 478 are concluded, but the memories of the place will be with me forever.

  1. Seeing that little alcove reminds me of Lake 22 here in Washington. I remember coming up around the bend and then gasping at the beauty. Hope you are totally enjoying yourself!

    • I heard of Lake 22 when I lived in Seattle, but never got around to visiting it. I’ve heard that it’s beautiful!

  2. Hi Montucky, That little lake looks so refreshing. I love how you got the shot of the reflected trees in the lake. Have a wonderful 10/10/10!

    • Those are small lakes, but very pretty. I couldn’t get a good photo of the stream that exits the lower one, but it cascades down the canyon and is crystal clear and ice cold.

  5. Those little lakes are so pretty with all the pines surrounding them and reflecting in them.

    • They are! I was pleasantly surprised to see all of the small lakes in that area. They seem to be tucked in all over. That’s one of the really valuable things about the roadless areas: they are a source for good, clean water, some of which goes into the aquifer, and some of which supplies the flowing streams.

    • I’m so glad you enjoy seeing scenes from this are, Sartenada! I’m planning to return to that area one day next week and hope that many of the larch will be golden then.
