Why This Album

In July 2008, I was on a backpacking trip that provided many different photo opportunities of Mt. Silliman. The only side that I was able to get a pic of wasn't it's South Face. So this album is mainly just to collect all of my Mt. Silliman pictures.

I had been doing lots of research about Mt. Silliman prior to going on this trek. My hope was to climb it on one of the two days that we were staying at at Twin Lakes. However, since this was a Boy Scout outing, the leaders didn't like the idea of a few boys tackling Mt. Silliman's North Coulior and with out adults. No adults wanted to come so we had to stay around the mosquito infested lake.

Even without being able to climb it, Mt. Silliman appeared breath taking to me and when ever it came to view, I usually took a picture of it. Hope you enjoy this album.

How about Silliman's neighbor, Alta Peak? Have you did it yet?
If you have a chance, check out Moose Lake - have a great one!!

Yes, it is a pretty neat peak. Nope, haven't done that yet. When I was first looking to climb Silliman, I actually wanted to do a traverse over to Alta. It would have been a long way, but I wasn't too worried bout that. However, when I first brought that up with the Scout leaders, they said no right away. So then I just opted for Silliman, which still didn't fly. Oh well. But hopefully I can come back in the near future and tag both of those peaks. I was looking at Moose Lake and it looks like an amazing lake, so I would definitely check that out too. Thanks for the comment!

Mt. Silliman was the first Sierra Peak I climbed. Went from Silliman Lake, but I've also hiked to Twin Lakes and Little Lakes. Anyway, great mountain and great album :)

Oh thats cool! I was looking at some of your pics of Silliman and for some reason I was wondering if it was your first. Little Lakes are some pretty cool lakes! Thank you.
