View From Little Redfish Lake

We were out for a little geocaching one afternoon and it led us to this side of Little Redfish Lake which gave us an outstanding view of the lake and mountains. This is part of the wonderful Sawtooth Range.
Little Redfish Lake is a name given to two different alpine lakes in central Idaho, both in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area and Custer County. This article refers to the lake on Redfish Lake Creek downstream of Redfish Lake and south of Stanley.
Little Redfish Lake is a picturesque mountain lake on the northeast edge of the Sawtooth mountain range in central Idaho, five miles south of Stanley in and less than mile from State Highway 75.
Its surface elevation is 6,489 feet (1,978 m) above sea level, and is about a mile (1.6 km) downstream from the significantly larger Redfish Lake (6,547 feet (1,996 m)). Both were named for the red-scaled sockeye salmon that returned every year to spawn via the Salmon River. The lakes flow into the river via Redfish Lake Creek.
The Sawtooth Mountain Range is part of the Rocky Mountains located a few miles south of Stanley, Idaho and approximately 65 miles north of Sun Valley, Idaho. The majority of the mountain range is within the Sawtooth Wilderness. Stanley's vibrant and welcoming community offers the traveling visitor a true Rocky Mountain experience with a variety of Lodging, Restaurants, Shops, Outfittersand other services.
