Day 2. Entering Core Enchantments
After resting and photographing by Lake Viviane we’ve put on our backpacks that seemed to get heavier and heavier and headed out to Core Enchantments. It was a short but dangerous hike, since at some places we’d need to walk on a ledge no more than one meter wide with a steep wall on one side and dropoff on the other.
In some twenty minutes or so we entered Core Enchantments…
It was like entering a magic kingdom – realm of white granite, golden larches, emerald lakes, delicate waterfalls and snow white mountain goats.
No picture can describe it. Photos show lakes, mountains, larches. But it was is much more than that. It was an oasis secluded from the rest of the world by steep cliffs of white granite with spiky tops filled with lakes with incredible pure emerald water connected by an intricate web of silky streams and cascading waterfalls.
It was peaceful, remote, isolated, inviting, unique. Like no other place on Earth.

How many lens did you carry with you? and what focal lenghts?
I took 2 lenses with me: 17-40 and 28-104. I used 28-104 most of the time. Maybe I could have saved some weight and leave 17-40 at home.
You are correct. The photos are beautiful, but they still don’t convey the feeling of a magic place like the Enchantments. That’s not your fault, though. You really do have to be there to experience it.
