Now I have, thanks for posting this picture.  A 10x lens is a must for any walk.  So many beautiful things not noticed by the naked eye.

The promised stats:
The drive is about 1 3/4 hours to the trailhead.  The hike, at a quick pace with no stops, is 1 1/2 hours to Taylor Lake, 6.3 km with an elevation gain of 585m.  Then, up to Panorama Meadows/Ridge was another ~2km, and ~250m elevation gain... time spent there, about 3.5 hours, then down from the lake again in a little over an hour.

I hadn't been back in a week! Think I had been on my knees and stomach more than on my feet :o 8)
It is a rich world and richer still in details ;)

In that case, it would have been more than a dayhike... best to bring camping gear.  ;D  ;)
