Click here for Bill's photo blog - a more complete, coherent narrative than ours.

Bill and I share a pool of photographs. We each made our selection from the pool. There is some overlap, but we do not collaborate in determining who uses which captures. The pool consisted of raw image files, and we each developed the photographs independently.

This trip was closer to back to normal following June's foot troubles. None of us had refound our form of ten years earlier, but we had a pretty good run of it.

  • On Day Zero, Stella drives us to Mammoth so I have a free hand to take a photo or two.
  • On Day One, We hike the Chocolate Peak lollipop, and have a look at Cloudripper.
  • On Day Two, We revisit Echo Ridge, but Cathedral would be asking too much.
  • On Day Three, We do absolutely nothing, and there is no page for it.
  • On Day Four, We make a close attempt at the East Ridge of Conness, but get timed out.
  • On Day Five, We have an anchor building and lead climbing course wih Jo.
  • On Day Six, We descend some way into into Tenaya Canyon.
