Objective in Sight (Sort of)
After 5 days of hiking the High Sierra Trail we stop at Guitar Lake with Mount Whitney just above us. This is the view we had from Guitar Lake looking towards Mount Whitney.

Brooding Mount Whitney (Sunny Mount Muir)
Forced to turn back before summiting Mount Whitney because of lightning, we caught this patch of sunlight on Mount Muir just past Trail Crest.

Up near Piute Pass, I captured this shot just as the stars were starting to appear and the light from the sun was fading away.

Half Dome in a Summer Storm
Our first day in Yosemite we were greeting by a very cold summer storm on Fourth of July weekend. The whole weekend was stormy and dramatic, I found out later the following week it snowed at Tioga Pass. This shot was taken at Olmstead Point.

Sierra Strata, Inyo National Forest
Descending from Lamarck Col back to North Lake we saw lots of lunar landscapes like this until we got back below the tree line.

Darwin's Table Sunset
We were peppered with rain off and on all afternoon as the remnants of a summer storm broke up over the eastern part of Sierras at Darwin's Table on our last night before returning home.
I was hoping these clouds would turn into lenticular clouds but no such luck, it was still a spectacular light show at sunset.

Dark Clouds Over Darwin's Table
These clouds produced nothing more than a drizzle but they sure looked gloomy.
