Monut Langley at 14,027 feet and a line of big peaks.
Zoomed in on the top of Mount Whitney at 14,494 feet and one of the Needles barely showing from behind a ridge.
Trojan Peak at 13,950 feet and Mount Williamson at 14,375 feet.
The Owens Valley and the Inyo Mountains.
Starting down off the peak. From the peak we headed straight down to Muir Lake where we sould find a trail.
Just off the peak we got a great view of the area. Muir Lake is the one on the left with lake number 3 at center and number 4 and 5 on the right.
Zoomed in on lake 3.
Zoomed in on lakes 4 and 5 and Old Army Pass.
Going down this sandy slope with the great views was the best part of the hike.
Getting closer to Muir Lake.
This big rabbit was standing still for a few minutes before running off.
Muir Lake at 11,100 feet, soon we'll be back on the trail.
Looking across Muir Lake.
On the trail along the lake. Just ahead we ran into Susan (Trailbunny) and her son. They were going to spend the night at Muir Lake. Forgot to get a photo of them.
In the trees as we near the end of the hike.
Back at the trailhead.
