Trip Info

This location is an ideal location to focus on water pictures, especially using the deep greens and blues found in Grassi Lakes.  There may still be some snow and ice left to photograph, as well as running water.  During the short hike to the lakes we’ll discuss our cameras in more depth, and if flowers are out we can stop for a few shots of them.  If time permits, we can drive up to Spray lakes for a few wider shots and take in the scenery.  Elevation gain: 250m
