Thank you Blair! It's hard to take a bad picture out there.
Picture #73 would be my friend Andy climbing on a glacier at the base of the Minarets, in the Ritter Range. This following picture (#63) displays the glacier pretty well: http://picasaweb.google.com/bushidanny/ ... 6409452434
If approaching from Lake Ediza (East), you can see the glacier as you gaze West towards the Minarets: http://picasaweb.google.com/bushidanny/ ... 9885166946
(It's the lowest one in the picture, near the middle)
You should totally takes your skis in that area! However, this glacer would probably not offer a very long ride.. A few minutes at best. I am sure there are better spots around though!
Thank you as well dskoon! Yup, stood on top of Ritter and was surrounded by dark clouds, pouring down on nearby mountains. Luckily, Ritter spared us its wrath... Man, it was such an awesome experience! But to be back on topic, the fall colors were amazing -- check it out next fall!
