Moraine Lake view from the big rockpile.
Ting-Hui and myself.
The trail into Larch Valley - note the yellowing needles on many trees!
A nice place to stop for a snack.
Jeroen quenches his thirst.
An open area, farther up the valley, looking backward.
Panning forward in the same area.
Larches and mountains.
More larches. The colors were quite subtle. This scanned image doesn't really do them justice.
Backlit larches to highlight the needles.
A broader view of the same scene.
View toward Sentinel pass, to the right of the big peak.
The long sloping ridge toward the pass.
Panning right for a closer view of the pass. A series of switchbacks is just visible.
View from the zig-zag trail up to the pass. Looking up toward many icicles on the rock.
Looking back down the trail.
Looking forward to the next switchback. There was quite a bit of snow and ice on the trail.
View back into the valley with its small lake.
At Sentinel Pass, looking north past a scary pinnacle.
Panning right to show Paradise Valley. The pass was quite icy, and it looked like a long way down.
The opposite view from the pass, of Larch Valley from high up.
The crew takes a well-deserved rest. Left to right: myself, Ting-Hui, Steph, a lady that hiked with us whose name I've forgotten, Jeroen, Richard, Nobuko, the lady's husband, and someone from another hiking group. Jan and Wen-Wu were out of the frame.
