String Lake


Cathedral Group Fire, July 2010Our first hike in Grand Teton National Park was around String Lake (green line on map).  The day before, fire crews had been fighting the Cathedral Group fire in the vicinity of Leigh Lake and some of the trails had been closed.  

Before we had been walking very long, I was in the process of changing lenses on my camera and lost control of the larger lens, which rolled down a short slope… into the water.  Water got into the lens, fogging it up and, later, when dried, left deposits on the inside glass surfaces. 

Unfortunately, shortly after that, we saw a moose in the water where it was shoulder deep on him, dipping his head into the water to feed on bottom vegetation, but without the larger lens, there was no way to get a decent photo of him.
