Precipice Lake

On our adventure run of Mount Stewart, we passed by Precipice Lake just below Kaweah Gap. Aptly named, the sheer cliffs of Eagle Scout Peak fall right into the waters of the clear blue lake. This stunning view was immortalized by Ansel Adams in 1932 with his shot “Frozen Lake and Cliffs.” Similar to the conditions Ansel Adams encountered, Precipice Lake was largely frozen and the lighting in the morning hours was very similar. Below is Ansel Adam’s photo from 1932 and my photo from 2010! The complete trip report of the Mount Stewart Adventure run with many photos and video can be found here!
