Typically in writing my hikes, I go in chronological order of days, not in locale. But for this location - Rainbow Lake, located in the Black Cap Wilderness, I am making an exception. The views here were beyond magical; they reminded me of Tolkien's writing in The Silmarillion of when Arda was young and untrammeled by evil.
These pictures are evening and morning of Days 4 and 5. This, for me, made the whole hike worth it.
