Canon digital, with GigaPan
Upper Lead King Trail (Basin or Loop?), a narrow Jeep trail, showing photographer's shadow (Dan Ritchie) to left.
Several mountains are shown, including 14ers (over 14,000 ft.).
Can anyone name the mountains in view?
To the left, the twin peaks of two mountains are connected. One climb takes one from the peak of one to the other before arriving home again.
The gigapanorama makes the 4x4 trail appear to take a U-turn here, but it was really straight. Miles before this, it was so narrow we often had to back up to let people go by. The passings we remembered most were those made on slopes of small boulders with high dropoffs, not this more peaceful meadow. Previous to this view, the 4x4 trail passed through a dark, cool canyon in the deep valley you see.
We believe that the mountains you see include the Maroon Bells, Capitol Peak, Snowmass, and possibly Crystal Peak.
