Wow! You've been busy :)

Amazing photos, especially of Dragontail. High altitude lakes are so blue... It's so weird to look at those pictures and imagine being in the spot from which they were taken. It almost doesn't seem possible. t's such an eerily beautiful landscape that it doesn't seem like humans could be there. It's even weirder seeing somebody I know up there!

Just. Amazing.

Would you mind if I passed some of the flick/picasa links (not the LJ post) to my mom, who was in the spokane mountaineers when she was our age?

Dragontail is perched on the edge of an area called 'The Enchantments'. Very popular backpacking apparently (you can't always get permits the day of). Riddled with lakes, very rocky. Apparently the best time of year to go is the fall when the Larch turns color. Not sure what I think of it. Neat rock formations around there but I'm very fond of trees. Not sure how much a sense of the Enchantments you get from the pictures - we sort of skirted it's edge mostly - but the bits you describe seem a very good capturing. I hear Little Anapurna (another peak near there) looks like people constructed walls on top of it but the effect is entirely natural. I'm planning on actually backpacking in there in Sept so I'll see.

Far as I'm concerned, you're welcome to pass on the embedded links.

Wow, it looks like you've climbed to some amazing summits ... I'm jealous.

A few of the hikes looked like they were with a truly gigantic group. Who have you been going on all these scrambles with?

Joined the mountaineers in January. Heybrook, Cowboy, Erie, Bean & Earl are part of a scrambling thing I took. Baring and Kaleetan are though the mountaineers. Ingells, Red, and Dragontail are with folks I met through the Mountaineers. I've gone on other hikes recently (mostly with relatives, some with friends, etc) but there aren't pictures on the internet for them. (Well except for the Mudd Alumni Helens hike, there are pictures for that, but it hadn't occurred when I posted.)
