Thanks Dave for the second half of photo's.
Did you have chance to get up to that higher lake?
How did the sunrise photo's turn out from Nancy Pass and the ridge?
Were you happy with your Big Agnes UL1? What were the pluses and minuses?

Great set of pictures especially the ones with the wildflowers. One of these summers I've got to get over to that part of the Sierra. Thanks for sharing them!

Thanks for the report and pictures, Dave. This is a beautiful area and one which I need to visit some day.

A 3000 pixel wide jpg of the Minarets from the ridge above Superior Lake posted over at Summitpost. One of several exposures I made from up thar. Mouse select the small default image.

Didn't bother climbing up to that pond. The FC UL1 was simple enough to quickly set up and take down. Still don't understand how to guy the sides of the fly correctly yet and intend to make a modification. Have only crudely tested the Gossamer polycro ground sheet for holes at this point and after 4 days of use it did have at least two minor punctures and a couple small holes.
