So, what should we do when the sun is out, there's no wind and the temperature soars to 5 degrees f? Why go for a nice walk on the Palmer Hay Flats to see Reflection Lake of course.
Because the mountains are so high and at this time of the year, the sun doesn't climb too far up, parts of this area don't see direct sunlight for three to four months of the year. O.K. you can see the sunlight way up there but it doesn't actually reach all the way down to parts of the flats.
I thought that the hoar frost on all the trees was stunning but was told that this was just moderate frost. That when it's really thick the tiniest ray of light causes everything to glitter.
You can tell that it's still quite warm out because on the lake there's a small spot over there on the left that isn't completely frozen yet. I bet that the reflections that give this lake its name are probably better when it's not frozen and covered with snow. Just a guess.
