Monument Peak Ridge — Trinity Alps Wilderness — California

Image by Beyond the Trail
Just returned from my first backpacking trip of the season. This shot was taken from the ridge near Monument Peak. Upper Rush Creek Lake (not shown) is down below — about two hundred yards down the ridge to the left — the lake was still about 95 percent frozen over. [5-21-14]

Upper left — far distance — mostly hidden by that jagged sawtoothed ridge — a slight glimpse of Trinity Lake. [All that exposed shoreline (bathtub ring) testifies to just how low the water — severe drought conditions here in California.]
