Heron Pond is an approximately 2.8 mile roundtrip hike from the southern parking lot at Colter Bay in Grand Teton National Park. At 7000 feet of altitude, I was winded when I finally arrived at the shoreline, and thus I found myself gasping for air.

But as I was gasping, I was also admiring the view...a view that I had seen on Flickr many years ago and wanted to see with my own eyes. And lens.
