A trip along Clear LakeTook a drive up the north shore of the lake (el. 1,326') on a beautiful spring day with poppies in abundance.
Pinnacle Rock east shoulderWhen I got to Nice at the northwest end of the lake I turned up Bartlett Springs Rd. all the way to within a short walk out to righteous views from Pinnacle Rock's east shoulder 4,500'. The views appeared to be even better than Pinnacle Rock itself 4,618.'
Windy PointLater a hike to Windy Point 4,772' several miles beyond a locked gate rounded out a full day in the hills.
