Sorry I don't have time to write up a whole trip report yet, but I'll start with a few pictures. I did the grand tour of the Enchantments, crammed into 2 days. Pretty awesome experience for me as it was my first time up there. The weather worked out great and strangely enough, I didn't see one other soul up there.
Started from Colchuck TH, went up Colchuck Glacier and climbed Colchuck, Dragontail & Witches Tower with very limited visibility. Traversed over to Little Annapurna where the clouds finally broke and I was rewarded with a spectacular view. Descended to Crystal Lake, set up camp halfway up McClellan, summited McClellan right at sunset...amazing. Never climbed so many peaks in one day...I was surprised since I didn't start that early.
Descended from camp and headed up Enchantment Peak, then down Prusik Pass over to Cannon Mountain. Went back down the north ridge of Cannon and back to the car. Ironically I finally got hit with rain 20 minutes from the car and got soaked I was happy to have decent weather the rest of the time despite the rain everywhere else!
Great light on some of your shots, especially the one titled "sunset" and the McClellan pano, where the tip of the peak in the foreground catches the golden light, while everything below falls into shadow.
If you have time later, you might want to see if you can fix the blue tone in the rightmost frame of the pano and then redo the stitch. It's great already, but would be even better if the color shift didn't show.

Nice! You've been busy, lately, going all the places I wanna go.
