Dat's so cool ...

I remember seeing a similar view of 'Brewer'
from the Buck Mountain lookout tower, while
I did a seasonal gig for Sequoia NP.

What about the peaks south of Brewer?
Are those part of the Great Western Divide?

Re: Dat's so cool ...

Thanks. And you betcha on the Western Divide. But they aren't big or prominent enough for me to identify which is which, so no labels there yet. I think Table, Milestone, Triple Divide, and Silliman all visible.

Re: Nice work

Thank you. I always like the views a little more when I know what I'm looking at...

South Of Brewer

Yes, the Great Western Divide peaks north of Colby pass are easily visible. Further to the right are the Kaweahs--The Black Kaweah is comparatively visible on the ridge. Mt. Kaweah--although 13,802 (highest peak west of the crest) is blurred by Red Kaweah and other peaks on the Kaweah Peaks Ridge.

Peak 11,485

Left of Silliman, up a broad slope, is Peak 11,485--the highest point on the Silliman Tablelands. The view from here is spectacular. One can see from Ritter south through the Kings River Drainage (Palisades) to the Kaweahs. The Black Kaweah is awesome from here. Not many people travel up the Marble Fork of the Kaweah beyond the Pear Lake area, so they miss this viewpoint that I consider one of the finest in the Sierra.

Palisades

Agassiz and Winchell look great from this view point too! Lovely shot!
