Pond Below Peak 2875

I believe this pond is basically permanent, though based upon the cracked ground underneath the water in places, I am guessing that it is occasionally much less full than it was when this picture was taken. It seems to be fed primarily by melting snow, though rain fall certainly contributes as well.
