As I work on writing up my solo trip for my next book, I’m using the photos that I took to guide my recollections. The solo trip is not going to get a write up on this blog, but some of the photos are just too neat not to share.
I took this picture on a switchback on the way up to High Pass on the first day of my trip. Three people riding horses, and one pack horse, had passed me on the trail earlier, headed up to Browns Lake. I had a theory that the trail to Browns Lake would be visible from the switchbacks up to High Pass, but I had no way to prove it – until I saw the bright orange that one of the riders had on their saddle, barely visible in the distance.
