This morning I hiked up to the Loch for sunrise. It was very calm and for the first time in quite a while there were clear skies allowing the mountains to glow deep red when the sun crested the horizon. If you are planning to head up there, be aware that just before the lake you will encounter snow. The area around the lake and the trail heading up towards Sky Pond are still covered in deep snow.
