The wildflowers were going crazy, but up here just beneath the Continental Divide, there was still plenty of snow and ice. I was sitting behind a boulder next to King Lake when I heard a group of younger hikers pass behind me at the moment they topped a rise and got their first view of the lake and ice fields. "Dude!" That was all that needed to be said. I turned my camera on just before the first splash: PHOTO and VIDEO by Joshua Berman:
