The hike to Dream Lake is picturesque and at any time of year. You hike past Nymph Lake which also has beautiful views of Hallett Peak in the distance. From there you hike to Dream Lake and then on to Emerald Lake or Lake Haiyaha, if you like. They are all beautiful and not too difficult.
A short distance before you get to Dream Lake, there is a small stream with a bridge over it. This photograph is taken right past the bridge. I just loved the view with the vivid colors.
