This mosaic is inspired by various hikes here in the high Rockies of Colorado. Rather than paying homage to a specific lake, this is a tribute to high alpine lakes in general. I've lived in Colorado since 2012 and have hiked to many such lakes as this region is blessed with countless gems of this sort. I don't quiet have a favorite but have some that I've visited more than others in the Indian Peaks Wilderness as well as the Rocky Mountains both areas within driving distance where I've lived, ideal for day hike excursions.

|Progress. All of the glass in this mosaic, including the mountains and the lake, is completely hand cut by me using basic hand tools.|
|Grouting - black really makes the bright blues pop!|
|The mosaic is almost revealed!|
