It definitely does. One of the most extensive views I've seen. Thanks for the comment.

I believe that it is from this summit that the Whitney Survey Team named many of the key mountains in the area: Brewer, King & Gardiner, and the three Palisades, North, Middle, and South. It is one of the earliest peaks climbed by Brewer, Hoffman, King, & Gardiner in the Sierra, and from the summit these six mountains have prominence. All are visible in this beautiful panoramic photograph. When I was atop Goat Mountain it was late in the summer, so there was a lot less snow in the view. I recommend this summit to those who want a good view without any technical climbing beyond the rocky slope on the final ascent, but the climb, mostly by trail, is over 7,200 of steady elevation gain, a bit much for a day hike. I did come down from Goat Mountain in one day, though, after summitting in the morning.
