Those huge chunks of rock just sit there and take it, day after day, night after night.
They are what they are, and don’t seem to care what that is.
Notice the large peak beyond it that faces us…it presents rough, jagged, bare rock nearly from top to bottom.
Their size throws off your sense of proportion.
Sweet little Jenny Lake. Actually, not so very little…that’s a tour boat right in the center of the photo….
I suppose some of the drama occurs because of the unforgiving nature of the terrain. The average elevation of the park base is 6800 feet. Those mountains above, got a skiff of snow a couple days before this picture! It’s July! That probably explains why we’ve had 68 degrees here while you have 86…or worse!
