I can't wait to do this hike again, one of my favorite places to go in the park. With all the snow in the park this year I am sure there will be plenty of runoff even in mid to late August. Got a late start this morning as I had out of state visitors that enjoyed this hike with me. Exif data shows 11:11am as the capture time, so it was extremely bright with a lot of shadows in the canyon. I tried to process a single image but could not do it justice to what I remember. So here is a 3-shot blended version.

Hope you enjoy this one and thanks for looking.
