A Photo Essay About Our Favorite Bodies of Water

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Photographer Pat Clayton says:

"These locations are ecologically fragile, and so I would not name them. It would take away from the adventure for individuals to just go where names are published.  Leaving things open spreads people out instead of focusing people on single locations.  The whole point of the highcountry lakes is to escape the traffic jams.  Let readers find their own adventure.  After all, a picture says a thousand words.”
