Upper Cataract Lake Panorama

Upper Cataract Lake Panorama

Upper Cataract Lake is located in the northern portion of the Eagle's Nest Wilderness Area. We backpacked in 5.5 miles and 2,200 feet up from the Surprise Trailhead. The trail was easier than we anticipated, but rain plagued our weekend. Still, a break in the weather made this panorama, taken from the northeast shore of the lake, possible.
