Question about some peaks?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Question about some peaks?

Postby Hikin Mike » Wed Oct 24, 2007 3:17 pm

I just got an e-mail from a photographer in Italy. Here's his e-mail:

excuse for my English, use an automatic translator.

Hi,

my name is (name withheld) photographer of Roma (Italia).

Kindly I wanted your help to identify these mountains.

Unfortunately after so much time I don't remember and this photo will be published in a book of geography.

As they call the tops and from where and is made the photo IMG03025.

A lot of graces.

Regards (name withheld).

I'll have a stab at it, although I can't guarantee the validity of these guesses A) Mt. Russell B) Mt. Carillon C) Tunnabora Peak D) unknown
I know there are a few here that have summited all these peaks and have a much better idea than me though

I'm almost sure Greg is right about A, B and C. And his guess for D is the same as mine. ;)

I thought:
A) Carillon
B) Gambler's Special Peak

So I asked a friend (BobR) who is familiar with that area and he confirmed it.

C) Tunnabora and its north ridge
D) could be a minor bump north of Hogback Creek, and it may not even be a high point.
