Lake Marie Waterfall

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a month since I went to Wyoming. Ryan Wright and I started off the trip with an early morning drive to the Snow Mountain Range and Lake Marie. We had never been to this location but have heard it was an amazing place. It’s only about 3 hours from home so I may have to make a trip up to this area again and do some more exploring.

The area and trail around the lake was still snow packed and while the peaks of the range was dry there was still snow. The morning was not ideal. It was a cloudless sky, but the location was beautiful and the sunrise was still wonderful. There was a waterfall coming from Lake Marie that flowed underneath the highway on the other side down to a larger waterfall into the South French Creek. I ventured out on the snow pack and captured the inlet waterfall out of Lake Marie with the Medicine Bow Peak as a backdrop.
