Bundled up on the Telescope Peak trail
Happy to finally be hiking this trail

Looking down at Badwater (lowest place in the US)

The windy and exposed trail.
Bex heading down after a successful but cold summit
The mountains in the far background are the Sierra (Mt Whitney)
From telescope you can see the highest and lowest points in the 48 states from one place

Bennet and Rogers peak
Looking back at Telescope Peak
the trail was snow free and completely passable
We stopped by the Kilns quickly on our way back down.
