Taboose Pass Backpack Photo Gallery

Post by trailhiker » Tue Sep 12, 2006 6:34 am

Hi everyone! Just found out about this great website so wanted to share a photojournal gallery I put together of a 5-day solo trek over the eastern Sierra's Taboose Pass I did in early August. If you've got the knees and stamina, it's a stupendous hike! Here are a few pics --

Should've been here long ago... ;) The reflection and campsite pics were actually taken at the "lakelet" just before Bench Lake; personally I think it's a better spot to camp as it's less buggy, you have the place to yourself--and the Arrow Peak reflections are more impressive.

Welcome to the forum! :)

Bench Lake is one of my favorites. We did it as a side trip after coming out of Lakes Basin (a section of the SHR), but didn't get to spend enough time there. The reflections of Arrow Peak are awesome!

I like the way your captions are next to the photos, and I can scroll down. I'm with webshots and would LOVE to switch to smugmug, but I have 7 accounts and no time to move them over. :(

Thanks for the photos!

Sweet! Awesome pics... I'm especially partial to the Bench Lake/Arrow Peak ones! (or the scenic pond just behind Bench Lake!). Very nice.

Great photos and welcome to HST! Another place to add to my must-see places when I recover from knee surgery. :D
