A Dollar lake at Sunset

Last week I went on my first backpacking trip ever and spent 4 days at the Ruby Mountains in Nevada. On the first day we started at the trailhead at 8700ft and hiked a few miles and set up camp at Lamoille Lake at 9700ft. We were just in time to catch this amazing sunset at one of the Dollar Lakes with the Alpenglow reflecting off of the water.
