Our first morning at Stuart Lake we woke up after a night of rain. The snow level dropped a bit and left a dusting on Mt Stuart. The sun was just coming up and adding some light to the scene.
The morning weather at Stuart Lake was the best we saw all day. A quick break in the clouds and then they slowly built throughout the day.
Nick and I day hiked from Stuart Lake to Colchuck Lake. On the way we walked through this meadow with an excellent view up the valley. You could see the clouds rolling in.

Relaxing at Colchuck
After hiking up to Colchuck, we chilled on the beach. This time of year the water level is much lower and beach is present.
Early on our second morning at Stuart Lake. We awoke to a nice morning with off and on breeze. During one of the off periods I was able to get this reflection of Mt Stuart.
Stuart in B&W
Mt Stuart relecting in the lake. I liked the contrast of this in black and white.
Took this just outside our camp at Stuart Lake. It was a beautiful morning with the clouds just starting to roll in. Within a couple hours it would be raining.
A Glimpse of Stuart
Our camp at Stuart Lake was located in the SE cornenr of the lake. Nick was taking in the view.
