Sunrise over Capitol Peak and Satan's ridgeline as seen from Pierre Lakes Basin - Elk Range - Colorado Rockies. Pierre Lakes had been a must on my list for quite some time, and it felt great to finally photograph it! Ever since my first summit of Capitol, gazing down upon the basin, I knew I had to get there. Turns out, not a whole lot of people do, mainly due to the intense vertical gain, heinous bushwhack and long mileage. Not for the faint of heart! After we paloozed our way through treeline we were greeted to a spectacular campsite, and sunrise was the cherry on top.
