From snowpack to lake water

This last weekend, from Friday through Monday, I ventured into the wilderness in search of mountain peaks, snowpack, and good fishing. Along the way I took several pictures that were pertinent to my project. There were a multitude of examples of snow melting, the snowmelt collecting into streams, and the streams running into lakes. All of this is a visual demonstration of the dependence that mountain lakes have on snowpack for sustaining their water levels. Just a small piece of the great and wonderful water cycle.
