<font color=maroon>Night Cap Peak (10,640')</font>

I took this photo on May 7, 2004, just a few miles east
of Dardenelle, California. I was traveling east on Hwy 108 towards Kennedy Meadow and Sonora Pass. It didn't have too much snow left on it, this being its northeast face. Alpinist guessed it correctly!
"Along the western slopes of the
central Sierra, the gentle terrain
of Emigrant Wilderness, which was
shaped by glaciers and volcanos,
offers the easiest access to northern
Yosemite NP. The Kennedy brothers
established Kennedy Meadows Resort
in 1886, and the area has focused on
recreation ever since. It first received
protection as Emigrant Basin Primitive
Area in 1931 and became a wilderness
area in 1975."
