The Avalanche Lake Trail is popular and easy to get to. The lake itself is amazing and very unique compared to anything you'd see in California. If you could get here in April - you'd see massive snow avalanches dropping down the canyon walls in to the lake. 

This river from the lake rages year round. 

It is hard to take photos facing east in the morning, though...
