Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Shoe Lake” by mrfaucher. Location: Goat Rocks Wilderness, Washington.
“It’s a 7-mile hike to Shoe Lake, but it’s not overly difficult,” explains mrfaucher. “Follow the well-graded Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) through cool forest and along an open craggy ridge to this pretty little lake tucked in an open alpine meadow. The wildflowers are sublime. The views are breathtaking–especially of Mt. Rainier hovering over the Hogback Ridge. And mountain goats are abundant here in this sprawling wilderness named for them.”
Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Galleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
