Pikas everywhere  Sucess!

We have pikas in the sierra but nowhere near as many. Fun to hear and see the cute little buggers everywhere.

snowy  Sucess!

bagged it en route to Hallet. Two big patches of snow above treeline and a bunch below. Cool views, saw some elk, and not many yuppies because of the snow.

Climbed in spectacular weather but there was a lot of snow. Hunted around for the summit marker for about an hour...no dice. Felt like the top though!

Great hike..even though my hiking boot blew out on the way down.  Sucess!

Great hike! Had lunch behind the boulders where I looked down and found a penny! Must have been a popular place to sit sheltered from the wind. Want to do this hike again. Hiked on up Hallet as well...outstanding views all along this hike.

Right couloir  Sucess!

Climbed the couloir right of the Dragon Tail. Dragon tail had deep snow and some concern over avalanche. The cornice was huge. After topping out, went to other side, descended and then climbed the leftmost couloir on the Northwest side.
