Very nice pictures, very nice trip Everything you were concerned about seemed to work out. I wish my end of Sept. trip was so successful, and that I could take so many in-focus closeups.
I've got to do Pinchot and Mather Passes sometime - maybe when I retire :)

Really nice. You are quite a photographer. I've done that route and I enjoyed seeing it through your lens. I can see it got a bit chilly at night. I may try to squeeze one more trip in next week. Still up in the air.

:) all nice pics and you are a photobug. Was a fun trip with good company and the scenery, well, unbelievable everywhere we went. Personally haven't got my fill yet. Hoping for a lengthy Indian summer.

Baxter Pass trail was steep in places and did fade in and out (but easy to stay on track) but beautiful. The weather was super.
Gordon's pack actually not heavy- just big. It is a Go-lite and most of the size was due to his sleeping bag, which he just put in there (no stuff sack or anything).
:D
