Hiking north over Hay Pass in the Wind River Range, the view opens up at the top of the saddle. Angel Pass hovers over the background to the west, and a giant waterfall full of snowmelt cascades down steep cliffs into Dennis Lake. Cumulous clouds fill the sky as the Divide forces moist air up that blows in from the West. I always try to stop on a rocky ridge near the top of the saddle to photograph the lake, cliffs, snowfields, and mountains. Here are a few of my favorite panoramas from Hay Pass this summer.
