Camping in Willow Basin, looking toward Buckskin
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
I set up camp in the Willow Basin after hiking up Buckskin Benchmark. I planned to climb "Willow Peak" the next day, but a big storm (ground shaking lightning and thunder, hail, sleet, snow, driving rain) made the conditions rather slippery and dangerous.
The light throughout the day was amazing. There were consistent blue patches of sky where the sun would shine through, casting golden hues across the basin. Dark thunder clouds made added an ominous tone to the scene.
