Middle Gaylor Lake at sunset.

After the bristlecones, we headed north to the Tioga Pass area.  The lake was mostly frozen over.  In an attempt to get some interesting foreground, I lay on my stomach free some of the frozen shoreline.  On my 2nd attempt, it collapsed under my legs and I fell in, getting soaked up to my knees!  I got the message & stopped trying to mess with Mother Nature then.
