The long 8-mile trail to Crystal Lake leads deep into the lightly traveled Mummy Range in the northeast part of Rocky Mountain National Park. The trail follows Roaring River to Lawn Lake, then continues as an unimproved path beyond to Crystal. At 11,520 feet above sea level, the lake sits in an impressive cirque below Fairchild Mountain, which rises to nearly two thousand feet above. At 100 feet or so, this lake is thought to be the deepest in Rocky Mountain National Park. I made this photograph in diffuse sunlight, which did little to warm the cold mountain air. But what a splendid setting it is!
