Incredible zoom

I didn't know you could see Gilbert all the way from Lookout. I've always recognized the others from the Wasatch (Agassiz, Hayden, Ostler etc. are very easy to pick out visually from any of the higher Wasatch peaks). Were you able to pick out Gilbert from Lookout with the naked eye or by zoom lense and map afterword?

Re: Incredible zoom?

The zoom level isn't that strong here, it is 3X. And then I cropped, but also a very little bit on the edges, leaving off Watson-Bald Group on the right and South Humpy Hill on the left.

Just by naked eye from the top, I was positive I see Tokewanna, where we've just been two days before. It caught my attention and it was the sole reason I took the picture, for the Tokewanna trip story!

Hayden is ever-unmistakeable too, but then I couldn't quite figure out which ones were Ostler and Lamotte, so it was time to play with the coordinates :)

Seeing is believing

Rob told me that you saw Tokewanna from Lookout and I was like "yeah right".
