Videttes from Mount Rixford
Looking up Vidette Canyon in the center with East Vidette on the left and West Vidette on the right.

Mount Stanford is the highpoint on the ridge behind East Vidette. Deerhorn Mountain is the highpoint of the ridge behind West Vidette at the end of the valley (Mount Ericsson is immediately behind it and both appear to be one mountain from this perspective).

Mount Brewer is the highest summit on the right side of the photo.

Mount Keith is the furthest highpoint on the left, and Junction the obvious triangular summit about halfway between Keith and Stanford. Midway between Keith and Junction Mount Tyndall is visible on the horizon, there is a line of snow visible on the west side of Tyndall's North Rib.

July 2010

Thank you very much.

Yes, you are correct. I did not even really notice those were visible until you mentioned it (the 14ers). Mount Keith is the furthest highpoint on the left, and Junction the obvious triangular summit about halfway between Keith and Stanford. There is a line of snow visible on the west side of Tyndall's North Rib... I'll add this to the caption...

Actually Chad the peak just to the left behind Tyndall is Whitney and the 2 sharp high points just to the left of Keith are the east and west horn of Williamson.

Wow- I've been sloppy the past two days. I should have looked at a topo first. Looks like you are right on Williamson. I would have suspected Trojan or Barnard might be visible before Whitney, maybe not. I'll have to check tomorrow on the higher resolution original, and draw some lines on maps. You are likely correct but I'm determined to be certain now.

Impressive Noondueler. My pics from Keith a couple days later confirm you are correct. And Barnard is visible as I expected. It is the peak in the shadow squeezed between Whitney and Tyndall.

I double checked Whitney from a pic from Williamson. You're a regular Colombo yourself detecting Barnard squeezed in there. I can also name most of the peaks to the right of Ericsson if you want and don't already know them.

Barnard was slightly easier to see on the image before the panorama was stiched together, but not much, mostly could identify it based on a photo from Keith and looking at elevation profiles of lines drawn on digital topos.

Sure if you can name them. I don't really know the peaks from Ericsson to South Guard. Never been in the area, this and Triple Divide peak is the closest I've been. I'll be impressed if you know the one closest Ericsson in the back!

Mt. Kaweah is the flat top peak back right of Ericsson. Mt. Francis Farquhar is the last on the right. North Guard is second from right. South Guard is left of Brewer. Thunder Mtn. is the next prominent peak to the left of S. Guard (the jagged pyramid). Mt. Genevra, Jordan, Milestone, Midway and Table Mtn. are all in the but I can't pin point them.
That was fun!
