That was a funny bump last week. But it reminded me to put up some photos.

Sadly, I forgot to pack my camera memory card so I don't have any shots from Twin Lakes/Sawtooths/Matterhorn, but I got a memory card at Rite Aid and got some photos from the Duck Pass Trail just off of Lake Mary in Mammoth. Here's a few of the nice ones.

Lakes along the trail and Mammoth Mtn. in the background.

It was a pretty trail.

We camped at Pika Lake, and found a funky hut built into a large boulder down off to the left.
Image

It was gorgeous but freaking cold and windy - nice layer of crunchy frost in the morning ...
Image

... so cold that I had to build a windbreak.
Image

But it warmed up that morning for some pretty views from our camp ...
Image

like views of a line I'd like to hit some day.
