When we were up there in 2009, we saw 3 moose. In 2010, we saw another moose. Today, as the hike started, there were 2 moose sitting by the side of the road.
|Napping? Maybe not. A mom and male calf|
|Bowing to the grass gods|
|The lovely cascades|
|The lake and The Tower from lunch.|
|Thinking about it...|
|Yep, the grass here is good enough|
After lunch, we headed up from the lake to Rummel Pass. The pass is in the gap between The Tower and Mt. Galatea. The ever eagle-eyed Michael spotted something high up on the tower.
|Staring up. Way up.|
|A little fuzzy, but ultra zoomed in|
|Virtually invisible white blobs, under the ledge|
Also cool is the pass.
|Everyone at the pass|
|Down the valley to Lost Lake|
|Back through the rocks and the upper tarn|
|The lower tarn|
|Caught him in mid-cheep|
|The meadow. Looking towards Mt. Birdwood|
|Rock-hopping a waterfall|
|Commonwealth, Shark's Tooth and Birdwood|
|North towards Mt. Fortune & Mt. Nestor|
