Satrting out across the meadow

Cows, Trail Peak , Trail Pass.
Pretty in here
Kathy M explaining the geography.. :)
something about the rock being as hard as a rock???
Trees and Moon
Taking a break on some flats
Kathy has to leave at the base of Muah, she has to get within internet range for work contact (which ended up not happening- she could have summitted! GRRR).
Robin heads up
Joe and Chip below me, this part was pretty steep.
Trailmaster, Cirque, Langley out there.
Silly shot on Muah
Olancha out there
Robin and Tom. We went to the left of the next bump (one of a few false summits on the way up)
Nice area before going down to the meadow
Straight down to the meadow.
Ahhh. Gentian. There was a section at the edge of the meadow just full of these.
From the top
Long walk back, almost done now
Chip snags a free ride from Tom, who was parked closer to where we entered the meadow.
At Pizza Factory for dinner. Chip and I stopped at Boulder Creek for a shower. Nice.
Tom had to go home, the rest of us headed out to the Alabama Hills for camp and Robins birthday celebration.
Joe picked up a great cake, Cori and I got candles.
Cori made another custom card for Robin. (I got the exact same one for Cori's birthday that is coming up!! Guess I'll have to find another!!)
Tom gave Robin a book - Death Valley I think.
Robin plays with her FLINGERS from Kathy. Cori got her a cool spray mister like the one she had on Towne Peak that saved us all from overheating. I got Robin a Coso petroglyph book and some other stuff.
Morning in the Hills.
Lone Pine Peak through the hills
LP Peak again.
Joe and Chip in camp area. Everyone else left at varying times- Cori and Kathy had to be out early for a trip up to Olancha area, Robin took off shortly after to get a nice traffic-less drive home.
another shot of LP Peak.
Langley and Lone Pine Peak from Alabama Hills.
