It is looking south from one of the ponds located between LaSalle and Meriam Lakes at a series of unnamed peaks just southwest of Merriam.

Baldy in the San Gabriel's... absolutely beautiful area, great training hikes, bitchin photo ops, and there's killer food and beer 3 miles below the summit @ the ski lodge

You can also do a very easy hike out of the Mosquito Flat Trailhead, back to Morgan Pass, through the Little Lakes Valley
Another nice one is from Onion Valley into Kearsarge Lakes and beyond.
Nice pics, btw. Thanks for sharing
