A few months ago, I released a song named, "Rain on the Tarn", and mentioned that I hoped to reach the subject location this summer.
Earlier this week, I hiked up through Glacier Gorge to Andrews Tarn, so I can count that desire fulfilled.
Here's the tune - evocative of a different sort of day than the bright and windy conditions in these photos!
Andrews Creek drains Andrews Tarn and joins Icy Brook running down from Lake of Glass to fill The Loch.

Glacier Creek runs down out of Glacier Gorge in Rocky Mountain National Park. Its headwaters are high up in the Gorge, tucked below the western flanks of Long's Peak and the Continental Divide. The Creek connects Frozen Lake, Black Lake, Jewell Lake and Mills Lake before leaving the Gorge and joining the Big Thompson River.
Here's a bit of video from one of my favorite spots along the Creek.
