    "Isolated by distance, these ponds and a lovely lake below dramatic peaks justify the trail pounding required to get there. The Arapaho called these lakes haa’ nach (“snow water”), which got anglicized to their current name. It is a truly charming name, but it does not differentiate these lakes from nearly all other lakes in the national park. Nonetheless, it is appropriate that such a beautiful name end up somewhere on the park map, and these bodies of water certainly merit the honor." Read more
