Acclimatization at the trailhead camp
Timber gap in fog
We climbed, descended, camped lower than we started! Wood was too wet to burn, so we left this "sculpture".
Serious chain securing bear box.
Pinto Lake is reportedly good for swimming, when beach is not iced over.
Stiff climb to Black Rock Pass.
First views of Kaweah range
Dayhike attempt to climb Mt. Eisen
First rain of trip on day 4
Note to self: next time read sign to avoid unintentional (but scenic) side trip.
Mmmm... Trail mix...
