Skyscraper Mountain from the 1st summit of Burroughs Mountain # 18022

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2015.09.29
Vantage Point: From the summit of First Burroughs Mountain, looking northwest

Caption: Skyscraper Mountain is at center, with Pitcher Mountain immediately to the left and in the background. Sluiskin Mountain is the double summited peak left of that, with Crescent Mountain at the far left. Pigeon Peak, Clear West Peak, and Frog Mountain are all visible to the right of Skyscraper, above the West Fork of the White River.

PhotoDescr: Taken on an Indian Summer day trip to the Sunrise area of Mount Rainier. Skyscraper Mountain sits above the upper reaches of the West Fork of the White River, which drains the large Winthrop Glacier. We climbed to the summit after having lunch on the top of Burroughs Mountain. Arguably it does not have as good views as Burroughs. On our return we contoured around the bowl in the foreground (Berkeley Peak).
