"All the wide world is beautiful, and it matters but little where we go... The spot where we chance to be always seems the best... - John Muir (The Alaska trip, June 1890)
Beautiful Brainard Lake, with storm clouds rolling over the peaks of Continental Divide. We stumbled upon this place by a pure chance, and it was one of the best experiences during the week we spent in CO in 2015.
"There are times when the ocean is not the ocean-not blue, not even water, but some violent explosion of energy and danger: ferocity on a scale only gods can summon. It hurls itself at the island, sending spray right over the top of the rocks, biting pieces off the cliff. And the sound is a roaring of a beast whose anger knows no limits.”
― M. L. Stedman - The Light Between Oceans
