Re: Beautiful

You should be able to get up there soon, it's melting out fast. I was up that way on Monday (6/7), and I didn't hit any significant snow until around 9,500', and that was just patches and drifts on northern exposures and in sheltered areas. The snow level is rising daily. So is the mosquito level.

Re: Very nice

What do you consider the furthest north "glacier" in the Sierra's? or even "permanent" snow-ice field.

Beautiful shot

Nice shot of that part of the Sawtooth. Those summits are very alluring in that aspect. I have climbed Matterhorn before, but this makes me want to go again. And now I want to expereince the top of the Dragtooth and the Doodad as well.

Stunning view

This is a fine image of a difficult subject. The side light really brings out the detail. How far up the trail from Mono Village were you at this point?

Re: Stunning view

Thanks. I was not actually on the trail when I took this, I was in my airplane. I don't remember what altitude I was at, but it looks like I was pretty close to the Cleaver Ridge, so maybe over the confluence of the Cattle Creek and Horse Creek trails.
