I think this is the McCauley Cabin; it's right by the Lodge.

Unicorn and Cockscomb. There is a lot of climbing potential around the Meadows- climbing of all sorts.

Fairview Dome and its cliffy friend.

The very easiest sort of climbing- I just hiked to the top of Pothole Dome for a view north. The two prominent peaks in the distance are Virginia Peak to the right, and Whorl Mountain to the left. Horse Creek Pass above those peaks makes a nice long ski in to Toulumne Meadows. Ask "Love the Sierra" for advice on that one:
After 4 years of backcountry skiing, this April we skied from Twin Lakes to Duck pass. It was gloriously beautiful and a big accomplishment for us!
I've only skied in from Virginia Lakes in that direction.

Lembert Dome behind me- the ski hut is just a quarter mile to the south west, and in better snow years, the base of Lembert is a great little ski area.

There was really fine touring in the Meadows and canyons.

The consensus around here is: A dead condor chick's head ???
