Pinnacle Buttes and Stormy Skies
View in Orig for better size and detail; this picture has been cropped a little.

Seen from Brooks Lake. None of these pinnacles are one of the four main summits of the massif; they are along the narrow, jagged ridge connecting the NW and main peaks.

Because of the rock quality, these pinnacles are rarely, if ever, climbed; some of the pinnacles of this massif have never been climbed.

Absaroka Range, WY-- June 2009

One striking thing about this photo is the beetle killed conifers at the base of these pinnacles!
Great sky! Great Light!

Thanks, Tim. I was up top around there a few hours before and climbed one of its neighbors the next morning. Great outings!

The striations of rock layers look cool.
