That was really fast! Did the elevation given it away or did you really recognize it despite the disguised framing?


Here's a similar photo to the one Tom shared from the same day.

Alright fine Lower Melakwa was easy even if I thought I was being sly. How about this one from 7/25?


Also a popular area. Or near enough to one.

Looks like the basin just NNW above Royal Tarn in ONP, between Clark, Sundial and Johnson(?).

You got it. Surprise Basin/Tarn.

Here's a photo from Aaron when it was all melty. Ozzy has posted some recent half melted photos too.

Sundial sure is a cool peak, isn't it? Like a little Half Dome. I bet it would be a fun climb.

Borank clearly knows this one, but maybe others need a hint.

This lake shares its name with a lake next to a certain famous volcano in our state.

Spirit! I thought it looked a little Teanaway-ey. Been to Ingalls, Ann, and some tarns in that area. But never that one or Gallagher Head.

Yep, you got it! It's a bit steep to get down to, but not far from Van Epps Pass. I found a bunch of boot paths heading down into the forest from a flat spot on the ridge up to Van Epps Peak. However, the paths seemed to keep disappearing and I didn't find any trails down at the lake.

Here are a few more shots.
