The trail into Larch Valley - note the yellowing needles on many trees!

A nice place to stop for a snack.

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.

[photo]
Looking back down the trail.

[photo]
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.

[photo]
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.
