North Palisade and Neighbouring Peaks # 7345

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.08.18
Vantage Point: From White Mountains, above Grandview Campground

Caption: North Palisade (14,242 ft) and neighbouring peaks from the White Mountains. Peaks shown are: Mt. Sill (14,153 ft), North Palisade (14,242 ft), Thunderbolt Peak (14,003 ft), Mt. Winchell (13,775 ft) and Mt. Agassiz (13,893 ft)

PhotoDescr: I stopped to take some photos of the Palisades on the way to White Mountain Peak. The early morning air was clear and calm enough to get fairly sharp photos of these peaks, 25 miles away across the Owens Valley. Despite this distance, the White Mountains provide superb views of the Sierra crest and give a good perspective on the height of the range.
