July 4 2016 vs. July 15, 2017 - same place on the Goodale Pass trail, on the high point between Grassy Lake and Lake of the Lone Indian

Just below the high point

this is a multi-frame panorama, but the left half is about the same view as above, just taken from a few steps further back

following a 3am storm, the morning clouds over Silver Pass were still looking rather threatening. July 16, 2017

Crossing fast moving streams, one of my least favorite things about early season. At least there are no worries about water, anywhere.

Thanks - that dark peak is unnamed - point 11424 on the topo map, seen from the north east. It is in the center of this Gmap4 link. My position was just to the right of the "Indian" of the Lake of the Lone Indian label, where you can see a small tarn on the map just left of the JMT intersection

Hi All,
Starting to get excited for the 2018 backpacking season and thought I'd share a few of my favorite images from 2017. I guess one of the benefits of a dryer winter will be a longer hiking season! Hope to make Maverick's meet-up and meet some of you.
Dave
