Silver Lake is locate by the Solitude Nordic Center up Big Cottonwood Canyon just outside Salt Lake City, UT. This pretty little lake has a boardwalk and trail all the way around it, making it very accessible for pretty much anybody. For those who want to hike; there are several more lakes up above this one, the closest being about 2 miles in and out. I arrived for sunrise and was surprised to find several people had beat me to the lake, not to take pictures but to fish! Hat's off to them; I though only us photo geeks were up and out at the crack of dawn!
