Marshall Lake is located on the northern end of the Sawtooth National Wilderness Area, Custer County, Idaho, USA.  The lake sits at 7,715 feet (2,352m) above sea-level and is a 4.5 mile (7.2km) hike from the nearest trailhead, which is Redfish Lake Campground.  Redfish Lake Campground is 6.2 miles (10km) by road south from the town of Stanley, Idaho.  The hike to the lake is all on a maintained Forest Service trail (other than the hike up the hill where this image was taken from).  The total elevation change of the hike to Marshall Lake is 1,145 feet (349m).

This image was taken on November 10, 2011 about 1,500 feet (457m) south of the lake and 750 feet (229m) above it.  Marshall Lake is approximately 480 feet (146m) long and 600 feet (183m) wide and has a shoreline distance of about 1,800 feet (549m).  As pictured, Marshall Lake is both ice and snow covered.

Harsh winters keep Marshall Lake ice and snow covered over half the year.  The best time for visiting in summer weather is August through October.

This is an overview of Idaho

Idaho is a state located in the northwestern region of the United States of America.  Idaho is the 14th largest state by area, ranks 39th by population and 53rd by population density of the 50 United States.  Idaho was the 43rd state to be admitted into the Union, on July 3, 1890.  Idaho is landlocked, being bordered by Canada on the north and the states of Washington and Oregon on the west, Nevada and Utah on the south and Montana and Wyoming on the east.  Idaho is nicknamed "The Gem State" because nearly every known gemstone is found within the state.  Idaho is also famous for producing about one third of all potatoes grown in the USA.  Idaho also hosts the largest barrel cheese factory in the world, producing 120K metric tons of cheese per year.  There is some ambiguity as to where the name "Idaho" came from, but it is generally believed to have simply been made up by George M. Willing.  There is a possibility it was derived from a Native American phrase.  Idaho is very mountainous and is a popular outing destination of the outdoorsman.  The state population was about 1.58M in July 2011 with 84% being Caucasian, 11.2% Hispanic and 1.1% Native American.  The state capital and largest city is Boise.
