Isolation Lake is the first or last lake you visit on your trip into the Enchantment Basin, depending upon which direction you are hiking the loop.
If you managed to hike up Aasgard Pass (more than 2,000 ft. elevation gain in less that a mile) than its your first.
If took the long route past Snowy Lake, then Isolation will be your last lake in the high country before heading down and out.
But either way, its a fantastic place.
High above timber line it is a world of rocks and ice.
Blue, gray and white are the colors here.
The air is crisp, sharp, clean.
A meadow is nearby with a small copse of larch hiding the toilet.
Sunset brings new colors, reds and orange, magenta and violet.
Later the stars appear.
Prints are available here!
Isolation is a world of wonder.
