Beautiful photos! But especiallly love the bear! We saw lots of bear tracks this weekend but no bear.

I wonder if your pct hiker is the one I saw last weekend. I think his name was Dan (Cpt Ugly Beard).

Good to see photos of the area north. Will start heading up that way soon.

Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing. Backpacking to the base of Clyde in the 70's was my first b-pack trip. Your photos make me want to get back there.

Nice pictures. Makes me want to get a digital body for all my SLR-film lenses and filters.

I've always liked hiking here for a short weekend trip. I remember the fishing from Shadow lake was outstanding as were the seagulls looking for fishguts, however, Lake Cecile is my fav - it must be the bedroom view from inside my sleeping bag:

Greg - GREAT pictures (as always!)... I'm so envious of your photography skills. You too, lostcoyote... beautiful picture!

LOL! I finally found where the bear picture was!! I kept looking and looking at the two posted pictures, and just figured I must be the guppy who falls for a great hoax, 'til I finally scrolled down to the bottom of your post and saw the link. (duh..... :retard: !!) I read the post.... just didn't notice the link.

What a great picture!!

Thanks much again everyone. Glad you all enjoyed the report and pics.

Lostcoyote...very cool pic...despite the number of times I've been in the area, never been up to Cecile, though I've always wanted.

Rosie, its always hard deciding where to put that link if I also embed photos in the post...I don't even see it myself sometimes ;)

Hi Greg. I saw the one image you posted on NPN awhile back, but didn't comment on it. It was very striking and caught my eye immediately. It had a watercolor or pastel like look to it. Very nice. Great TR.
