After zig-zagging up switchbacks, passing through mountain meadows and being passed by numerous CCC members, Mike finally reached a crest, then headed down towards the extraordinary Garnet Lake. Luckily, it was early enough that the sun was still coming in at an angle.
Quite, quite nice. Mike managed to remember to take several panoramas, a representative one is shown here.
