Funny, I had looked at Baldy mountain (10728) on the map earlier and wondered how it would be to do all of those peaks as one hike.
BTW, the link to hill 10728 doesn't work right.
If I can, I always prefer to return by a different route. Back on East Mtn, I arranged with the slower-hiking fellow highpointers that they'll pick me and Jasmine at the T-junction, so we had to hurry along this picturesque ridge, but in the end we still beat them to the road by a good margin. A longer but less steep descent is often the best choice :)
Did you happen to take any pics along the way?
I didn't have a camera on that trip. One of our team mates, Matty the ScoutMaster, took a nice shot of East Mtn from Potters Ponds, which is the direction you wanted:
I think you might just use the image URL, or if you really want a copy, let me know and I'll ask him for OK.
