Your thinking is right on! Clue is that view is to NE! Ridge in background does have named peaks But not sure if they are visible in pic.

It took me a while. And yes I cheated using Google Earth, though I knew it was around the Benson Lake area. Small lake to the east of Miller lake.

Using google earth isn't cheating! It is using the tools you had at hand plus the logic sssdave helped to get you in the right general location.

You are up!

Since bigD seems to be out hiking on a week long loop trip, as little D will offer the below until he returns.

Image

The above is on my Gallery_B sub-page at:
http://www.davidsenesac.com/Gallery_B/gallery_b.html

that gallery has 124 each 4x5 film images I still need to drum scan for about $80 each. There is a caption there under the image that will narrow down the region.

Dave: First of all, thanks for stepping up!

Second of all, what a great page of photos!

Third of all...this really reminds me of the area around Noble Lake...so I am guessing Reynolds Peak?
