A deep blue, ice cold tarn in a glacier-scrubbed, polished brown rock basin below the red-slab cliffs of 7,700-foot Ingalls Peak. And, looming over the lake are the white granite walls of 9,500-foot Mt. Stuart.
It’s always a place of memories. The old cowboy summitted Mt. Stuart in the late 1930’s.
I’ve hiked, hunted and fished in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness many times, beginning as a kid.
But of all the destinations, Ingalls Lake is the best.
