Lower Cathedral in Early Summer
On my fourth attempt to Upper Cathedral Lake, our group was making good time and I decided to visit a viewpoint for Lower Cathedral Lake on the northwest side that I first visited three years ago. I didn't remember it looking like much, but we needed to kill some time before sunset (and get away from the lakeside mosquitos).
We emerged at the top of the ledge to this breath-taking sight. It was the perfect blend of partly cloudy near-sunset, the sloping granite, and meandering streams intertwining across the fresh green meadows of early summer.
