Cory and I hiked up to the Ice Caves at Big Four Mountain - although it was sunny and clear, most of the trail is in the shadow of the mountain, where the sun doesn't shine. But that is what enables the ice caves to survive the summer.
We clambered up a rocky slope for this view - there are actually people down there by the ice edge.
The ice is pretty rotten, and Cory was able to chunk some of it off the edges.
Big rocks and waterfalls.
The trail back to the parking lot goes through the swamp via boardwalk. You can see the sun shining on the far hills, but we're in the shade.
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
