We drove into Gold King Basin after having been turned around no more than a half mile from Geyser Pass due to an early season snow (even getting as far up as we did up the pass was a challenge). While a bummer at the time, it is probably a good thing a "no camping" sign is posted at the end of the Gold King Basin Road. I mean, look at that view! There'd be hundreds up there all the time! Sep 2006. Fuji Velvia 100.

The Peak in this photo is Tuk No

Tuk No is a sub-peak of Tukuhnikivatz which is the Peak in view to the left through the trees.
Exxon apparently tried to drill right here. The face shown here is called Exxon's Folley in a Utah BC Ski book.
I wouldn't know this either but I just skied Tuk No and down this run just last weekend. At least you care enough to guess!!! Just thought I'D SHARE.

Re: The Peak in this photo is Tuk No

Thanks for the beta. I hopped on google earth and sure enough, Tuk is way back there. I hate being wrong but am actually getting used to it by now.

naa, I'm wrong all the time!

but it's fun that you care enough to try to outline what peak is what. It's trivia(l).
