Looking out of Gothic Basin

Gothic Basin was one of the most phenomenal places I've ever been, the picture just doesn't do it any justice.

The Milky Way from the Muir Snowfield

This was taken at 2:00am at 9200' on the Muir Snowfield. It was socked in all day below Panorama Point but totally clear above. I woke up at 1:30am and looked outside the tent at a completely clear and gorgeous sky and made myself get up and brave the freezing cold to take photos for the next hour and a half.

Lake Cushman

Spiderweb covered in dew

This was one of the many spiderwebs I found on the abandoned oil truck at the end of NF-9021 (accessible to hikers via the Zig Zag trail or dirt bikers via NF-9020/NF-9021).
