Snow Lake

Wilderness of Glacier & Snow Lake, originally uploaded by Heartkins.

Sheer, midnight blue beauty. Nice quote below from someone who’s stood where this picture was taken from.

The following from wiki:

Snow Lake, or Lukpe Lawo, is a high-altitude glacial basin in the Karakoram mountain range in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Martin Conway, the first foreign visitor, gave Snow Lake the name in 1892. Conway described Snow Lake as “beyond all comparison the finest view of mountains it has ever been my lot to behold, nor do I believe the world can hold a finer.”[1] Snow Lake is very difficult to reach, however, and only about 200 people manage to reach it per year.[2] In 1899, the husband-wife team of William Hunter Workman and Fanny Bullock Workman came and speculated that Snow Lake might be an ice-cap like those in the polar regions, from which glaciers flowed out in all directions, and estimated its total size at 300 square miles (116 square kilometers).
