Sunrise over Frozen Dream Lake

I woke at 4:15 to start my hike to Dream Lake which is only a mile from the Bear Lake Trail Head in Rocky Mountain National Park. I got to the trail around 5:50 and figured I had plenty of time to hike to Dream Lake. Well with the snow shoes on (first time) and several feet of snow on the ground it was not as easy to get to as the 'mile' with a 450 foot incline would seem. It took me about an hour to get there and I made it just before sunrise. The mountains in this shot are behind me but I loved the sky and the reflection off of the frozen lake. I can't wait to be back.
