Cougar Lakes Basin Reprise, Frank Church Wilderness, Idaho

Scroll down to content

I wanted to revisit the Cougar Lakes Basin trip quickly for a couple reasons. #1, Super Dave has posted a trip report on his web site and I encourage y’all to go visit it for a different Dave prospective: http://idahoalpinezone.com/index.php?p=4_200 #2, I forgot to point out a couple things on one of my favorite images from this trip. Notice Bear Lake in the daytime image below from the top of Cougar Peak……

This night time image was taken from about the same spot. Notice the reflection of Jupiter in the lake….. I believe Jupiter is the bright light to the left of the Milky Way and we were in the perfect position to see it’s reflection in the lake below. I also adjusted the exposure a little to bring out the mountains. Surreal!
