Great shot.

I don't know when exactly you took this pictures but see how much less snow there is now than when I took the same shot on July 2, 2003.

Yes, the last 2 years were more dry in San Juans. The views into Grenadiers are the best.... thanks.

Were you on a trail? Or a peak? If either, which ones? We were backpacking in the Weminuche last year and were near Vestal but I never saw anything approaching that view!

I was hiking peaks - several 13ers - just south east of Silverton. I went on an easy ridge of 4 13ers, and the whole time had a views like this....
Whitehead Peak, Mt. Rhoda, and a couple of UN peaks (don't remember numbers).

San Juans are my favorite from all Colorado Mountains. Good luck with your move.

Thank you Vlad... the rock on those peaks is amazing... great multi pitch alpine climbing, a rarity in Colorado (typically a loose stuff), but Grenadiers are made for climbers....
