Walked from Squaw Valley, over Granite Chief, along the ridge to Needle Peak and Lyon Peak by myself. You wouldn't know it from Squaw, but the ridge seems real remote. Good weather, quite windy, nice views. Could see Lassen!
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
