Imogene Lake – this looked like one of the primer camping spots in the Sawtooths. Not only stunningly beautiful, but also not nearly as crowded as nearby Alice Lake. Just an overnight trip, we were looking do our usual escape of Boise and head to the mountains. However, waking up on Saturday morning revealed a rainy forecast, but we decided to make the trek as it was supposed to end before sunset. We arrived in Stanley to scattered storms, braved the art festival traffic, and set off on our hike to Imogene just as the rain began. We passed Hell Roaring Lake and admired the famous finger of fate shrouded among rain clouds. Just as we arrived to our destination, the rain ended and the clouds parted bathing the wilderness in glorious golden light.
Note: We visited Imogene and the Hell Roaring and Imogene Lake area several more times over the years, and have added more photos below.
