Hard Creek Lake, Hazard Lake, and Bruin Peak, Payette National Forest

Great Fall backpack trip with Tommy for some fishing, peak bagging, and photography.

Looking back down on Hazard Lake from the top of Bruin Peak, Bruin Mountain is just to the left of the lake.  See my previous trip report on Bruin Mountain which I posted on August 14th.fullsizeoutput_38dd

More changing light!

Turns out Type A bike racer types get bored while camping and find all kinds of ways to pass the time…… Tommy, aka Gilligan, about to head out for a 3 hour tour….. I warned him that they don’t call this Hazard Lake for nothing but he didn’t listen!!!!

Hiking back out this morning past Hard Creek Lake, look carefully at the image center right at the moon… and the moon’s reflection in the water by the grass!  I got muddy feet trying to get this image!

More moon reflections.  I NEED a new, different lens to do moon photography!!!
