View towards the eastern narrow end of the reservoir. Still snow in the semi-higher country.

Oops, bad focus on timer. But hey, here's proof that I made it since i couldn't find the summit register.
View of the reservoir far below.
Took some pictures on the way down. It's a class 2 peak, easy to get up with some patience and basic route-finding.

Looking down the ridge I followed to gain the summit.
This is the first cairn I saw - and it was about 50 feet from where I rejoined the trail after 2 hours of scrambling around.
Looking back at LeConte once I'm back near the trail. Fun peak, lots of opportunities to scramble around on rock.
Yay, trail! My legs are happy to be done with the scratchy manzanita bushwhacking.
Back at the rancheria falls bridge. About 1/2 mile back to camp, making today about a 14 mile day.
Playing with the HDR settings on my camera.

Why did the newt cross the trail?
Back at Wapama Falls, today it's cold and rainy. Not looking forward to running through it quite so much.
