...with my love, Jeff :)
and yes, twas a slightly painful hike. I usually go faster than other people, and am most familiar with the San Gabriels. Lamont took my breath away and made me realize how much I have to go (in terms of my bodily strength), and makes me want to further explore the (amazing! wonderful!) Sierras. gorgeous
Started out in the clouds. A light rain soon turned to snow, which dusted the pinons and sagebrush. Visibility was never more than 100 yards. I climbed the wrong summit first, then found the correct one. A very peaceful outing. I probably liked this better than if the weather had been clear.
