A partially frozen Colchuck Lake in Washington's Cascades.
This is Lake Colchuck outside Leavenworth Washington. This was a 4 mile hike with a couple thousand feet of elevation gain, and is the entrance to the iconic Enchantments area of the Cascade Range. On this day it was very cold, and the lake was partially covered with an inch of ice.
