|Thick clouds whip through the forest canopy|
Mountain winds howled and clouds cloaked the canyons and high ridges. I could barely make out a few nearby islands of trees situated on the outer fringe of the meadows. Trees whipped along the ridgetop above Boulder Lake, collecting moisture from the clouds and occassionally letting loose with a big drop.
As I crested the nearby ridge between the meadows and Boulder Lake the skies lightened a bit, but the canyon below was completely hidden.

Unfortunately, I lost the couple of pictures I took of Boulder Lake. Another time. Here is one from Wikipedia.
