It's a short and steep 2 miles to this lake on the east side of Indian Heaven Wilderness. Did a solo trip here in mid-September.

Mt Adams with fresh snow on the way up

This huckleberry was all dried out and the color and texture of dried wood - haven't seen this before

Fall colors on some huckleberry bushes

A small part of Deep Lake from my camp

Small pond east of the lake

Profusion of fat, ripe huckleberries

Amanita mushrooms

Deep Lake near sunset

With Mt Adams just sticking above the trees

The next morning - first frost!

Sunrise on Bird Peak and Deep Lake
