Versteeg Lake or Lake 11595, which ever one one wants to call it.

Sorry, I did not go to page 2, and never knew this was called Versteeg Lake.

Hmmm. This is hit a snag, since Mav doesn't want to post a photo. I'll get it started again....maybe...with this one:

I didn't have the patience to zero it in exactly.
Is this pretty close?

Definitely LLV, and I'm going to guess that's taken from the Mono Pass trail at about the 10,800 contour, which would make those Heart and Box Lakes.

In the background at frame left is topo peak 12744 that has the climber's name Peppermint Peak. To the right is Pyramid Peak and to the right of that Bear Creek Spire. Notice how 12744 lines up with Box Lake which one cannot see the right side of, and the right side of closer Heart Lake with the center of the camera position. Since this was taken close if not on the trail, one can then bisect where the noted line crosses the trail.
