Our objective for the day was to get on top of Panorama Ridge (snow-capped mountain on the mid left) to view the lake from above, but we turned away due to some dangerous overhanging snow which looked like it could start an avalanche at any moment. Instead of not getting to see the lake at all, I decided to run there quickly which added about an hour to our trip. We were walking through the forest in the dark, but seeing the lake at near sunset was so worth it!
While the lake itself had ripples, the somewhat enclosed pool of water between the Battleship Islands and the shore was like a mirror.
