This shot was taken in Cajas National Park in Ecuador. My wife, Megan, and I traveled to Ecuador in February 2012 to visit friends, Bill and Ilene Roberts, who had rented a house in Cuenca. Bill and I hiked to this lake to do a little trout fishing. The park is high in the Andes mountains and this lake is at about 12,000 ft. above sea level.Walter Shook, For The Baltimore Sun
