El Cuervo if you where a little more to the right you might be able to see
the Tyndall Creek Ranger Station from there, nice shot.

Windwalker let me correct myself by saying that they do not support raw format
or DNG, which is the format that I would have liked to have used.
Also once you start stitching large files together to make panoramas and then
add some HDR to the mix the 25MB becomes a very small number.
Just checked my regular raw files are averaging 27.7 MB from my 1ds and my TIFF
after working on it in Photomatix comes in at 42.5 MB and another at 118.2 MB form
my 30D.

Looking SSW from atop Junction Peak. I climbed up to the notch on the east side just south of the northern tip of The Mesa, traversed the skinny section between Mesa and J Peak, up the peak and then traversed west and north. Lots of class 3 under threatening skies that backed off after all was said and mostly done. [Sept. 2004]

Glad you liked them Maverick. I was at that ranger station to visit the lovely ranger in 2005, but she was out on patrol.

Okay El Cuervo now you could probably see the Ranger Station with a telephoto lens
and I like the flat top view of Diamond Mesa.
I climbed up the southern end of the Mesa and ascended the south ridge route to the
top of Junction Peak, comfy class 3, which route did you use?
The small glacier above the small lake under Caltech has really shrunk since I last saw
it some 20 yrs ago, global warming, when was the photo taken?

Here is one from the Observation Lakes Basin, I'll be gone for the weekend this is my
extra.
Submitted photo's have been great, keep them coming.
