Beautiful scene

by Genny

Of course it's beautiful! It's the view from the Dream Lake Overlook in Rocky Mountain National Park. What fascinated me is the lake you can see tucked in there. Is it Loch Vale, or something smaller, or something bigger? We flipped the map over about a hundred times trying to figure out which mountains we were looking at in order to figure out which lake it was. Our viewpoint was on one side of the map and the scenery options were all on the other side. Isn't that always the case- a map thats 32x22 inches and the 20 inches I need has to be split half on the front and half on the back.
This was our Saturday adventure. We decided to get a late start up Flattop Mountain. It was a lot of fun, but our high point was still 1,100 feet lower than the summit. Here's Ben deciding to turn around and head back down.

My guess: either Mills or Jewel Lake. You can see Longs and that jagged ridge all the way up Glacier Gorge, and I'm pretty sure the ridge to the right is where All Mixed Up forms.

You are correct, Ma'am. After a while staring at a map, we figured out that it is, in fact, Mills Lake.
