Lake Helene

4. The view from here is incredible and just can't be captured with a couple images.  I took a whole series and assembled them into a panorama. Within this panorama you can see Flattop Mountain, Ptarmigan Point, Notchtop Mountain, Knobtop Mountain, Little Matterhorn, Gabletop Mountain, Odessa Lake and The Gable.

I sat here for over an hour soaking it all in.  And occasionally, I could hear noises in the distance.  Just an occasional knock at first made me wonder if there was someone somewhere in the expanse before me.  Then I thought I heard voices so I scanned the whole area for tracks in the snow.  If there was someone down there somewhere, surely they left tracks that I could see.  But I could see none.  Super Size It!  (226kB).
