PPS Tutorial


Location Name:  Yellowstone National Park


File Name:  Peyto Lake Overlook BW pic


Short Description:  Yellowstone National Park (Viewable before payment)


Location Details:  Keep this short and sweet because this is (Viewable before payment.)

Example:  This location is a 3 hour hike to the lake and a return trip of 2.5 hours.  Do not let the mileage of 6 miles one way scare you from this beautiful lake.
Directions:      Please provide as much detail as possible.  (Viewable after payment) 
Turnoff on Bow Summit Area road (mile marker 40) of The Ice Field Parkway Map, park in the bus/rv parking area.  This is the shortest walk to the Peyto Lake overlook and trail access.  From the parking area to the trail access is a few hundred feet.  Parking area to the photo location is approximately .7 miles with an elevation change of 800ft. Take the trail access (about 70 feet before the overlook) towards the base of the lake, .5 miles into the hike you will see a cleared area from avalanches on the left side of the trail.  This offers the only vantage point to photograph the entire lake.  The footing is solid enough to gain a few hundred feet in elevation to frame the shot.   The best time to photograph Peyto Lake is from sunrise until 11am.  During sunrise pink clouds are common with cloud reflections in the water.  Closer to 10am the sunlight turns the lake water a turquoise blue, which makes for nice pictures as well.  The Ice Field Parkway Map is available under the PPS Resource page.
