Sawtooth National Wilderness

Alpine Lake is located on the northern end of the Sawtooth National Wilderness Area, Custer County, Idaho, USA.  The lake sits at 7,837 feet (2,389m) above sea-level and is a 4 mile hike from the nearest trailhead, which is Iron Creek Campground.  Iron Creek Campground is 5 miles (by road) from the town of Stanley, Idaho.  The 4 mile hike is on a well maintained hiking trail and has an elevation change of 1,100 feet (335m).


This image was taken on September 29, 2011 from the east shoreline.  Alpine Lake is approximately 1,600 feet (488m) long and 730 feet (223m) wide and has a shoreline distance of about 0.92 miles (1.47km).  At the southern end of the lake stands 9,861 foot (3005m) Alpine Peak (pictured).

Winters are harsh at Alpine Lake, which remains ice and snow covered over half the year.  The best time for visiting in summer weather is August through October.  There are several very nice camping sites on the shores of this lake.

More About 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.Source: wikipedia
