Iceberg Lake

Charis Wilson described Iceberg Lake in 1937: "there it was; a little lake with cakes of ice and snow floating over its inky water." See Edward Weston's photo here.

Thanks to the CCC the path to Iceberg Lake, once overgrown (in places) and eroded (in places) is now a legitimate trail.

The only problem is that there are now no icebergs in Iceberg Lake. I wonder why.

The pond near the outlet just before the plunge down towards Lake Ediza is very pretty, however.
