Blog: New Release Of 'October Sky' Taken On A Hike On The Clyde Lake Loop Trail, Uinta Mountains, Utah - 10/17/2020

My wife and I hiked the Clyde Lake loop trail on Saturday October 17, 2020. This trail starts at the Crystal Lake trailhead, is approximately 5.3 miles round trip and has an elevation gain of about 500 feet. It was a glorious October day with some wind and cool temperatures. We took our time on the hike and I carried my camera gear in hopes of getting some sunset photographs over one of the many lakes. We ended up getting to Wall Lake at the perfect time to capture an amazing sunset and then hiked out in the dark. Check out the video below of the whole adventure and see my new release of "October Sky" taken at Wall Lake!

October 17, 2020 my wife and I spent the day hiking the Clyde Lake loop trail in the Uinta Mountains of Utah. The wonderful fall weather was amazing and this 5 mile hike was good for my soul. This is a high mountain trail that starts at just over 10,000 feet and visits many wonderful lakes and ponds. We approached Wall Lake as the sun was setting and seeing the color form in the sky we rushed to the shore for the sunset. I set up and photographed as the sky exploded in color. I chose this spot quickly because I liked the shoreline receding into the distance and the log in the lower right corner. My wife and I watched in awe as the water reflected the sky in shades of magenta. We ended finishing the last mile of the hike in the dark but it was well worth it to photograph such an amazing sunset over Wall Lake with Mount Watson towering in the background.
