Re: Gorgeous shot!

Thanks! This was a spur of the moment trip as 3 days with no chance of thunderstorms suddenly appeared in the forecast.

Beautiful view!

A very inviting scene. The right side of Yellow Squaw looks not so good but the right ridge walk up looks fun.

Re: Beautiful view!

Thanks! You're right, it was easy getting to Squaw from where we were, but we found the far side (unseen in the picture) to be a lot tougher with lots of loose rock and it took a long time to make it to the top of Explorer.
