Thanks, y'all! It really is a gorgeous area...I feel lucky to get to hike there.

like that you chose monochrome for this shot... lots of detail this way!

I used to live in the Rockies of Colorado, you make me yearn for a backpacking trip in the high country, stunning B&W.

Shannon, 99% of what I do is color, but looking at this, somehow I just thought it had to be black and white.

Sweet Repose, my first hiking experiences as a small child were in the Front Range on family trips to Colorado (we had relatives there)...that's where I really learned to love the mountains.

What a fabulous photo! I just popped over to look at more of your photos from the Trinities and I especially loved all the flowers! What a magical place!

Ah, hemlock shadows,
will you vanish with snowmelt
or perhaps sooner?
