The Trail to Rainbow Lake

 I really like this image of the switchbacks on this trail between Lake at Falls and Rainbow Lake (you can see just the edge of the lake in the picture above).
 The trail was steep, but well engineered through this rockslide.
 Another picture of me here above Rainbow Lake.  So hazy from smoke - you really can't see the beautiful blue-green color of the water.
 Rainbow Lake is a favorite stopping point on this trail.  There is a large meadow at the inlet that can accommodate a lot of campers.

Rainbow Lake is at 7670 feet.  It is 57 acres in size and 180 feet deep at it's deepest point.
