The 0-2 feet of crusty snow on the ground made the hiking tricky the day we took this. (The bald spots behind us were not common.) The snow-covered bank we're sitting on is only a few meters wide, but it appears huge because I let the camera angle go very low (and very high too). The lake, even though it appears quite thin, is about 50-70m wide at this point.

The peak visible to the left is either Rockchuck Peak, 11144 feet, or Teewinot, 12325, but I didn't take a GPS fix or have a compass along so I'm going to need to look carefully at the mountains & maps to figure it out. :-( String lake is about 6880 ft.

Equipment notes: This is the first pan I've uploaded that was shot using a Canon A650. This is a pretty decent Gigapan camera from what I've seen so far, but it does not fit on the stock bracket. Following advice from Wade Roach, I modified my bracket using a drill and dremel. (Thanks, Wade!)

This is a "low resolution" pan, shot at wide angle. I also took a high res pan (i.e., full telephoto) from the same site and am waiting on it to stitch now. I'll update this description with a link to that pan later on.

    I had to interrupt the upload of the highres version at 75%/3 hours to change hotels, but hopefully I can run it overnight soon.
