That's why I prefer early season, when everything is covered in snow.
I love Topsy Turvey Lake, one of my favorite places.
Sorry, don't have many photos of talus. Here's what I do have:
Maybe this is scree more than talus. Approaching Echo Col from the JMT near Muir Pass.
The famous talus fields of the Enchanted Gorge that give Disappearing Creek its name.
Talus at Tulainyo Lake, below Mount Russell
Talus in Lake Italy Basin, with Bear Creek Spire in the middle
Talus cave below the Central Howser Tower, Bugaboos
