  1. Lovely wildflowers, Bonnie! The pika is so cute. I have one as a character in a short story I wrote. πŸ™‚

  2. Extraordinary shots of amazing beauty, Bonnie Rae! I’d not heard of this area. Looks like a place I would love to visit! And that snowpack, wow! Thanks for sharing! 🌞

    • Thanks so much, Lisa! You would love it here. You can extend this hike to Van Trump Park and Mildred Point. Gorgeous hike!

  3. Wow… if I ever come back for another go’round on this orb, I want to be your eyes… see what you see…* Phenomenal images, Bon… not just a good eye, but exquisite timing and composition! Beauteous!

    • Aw, shucks πŸ’œ
      Thanks, Mare. You would love it there. The best part is that you really have to do the work to get such such a fabulous view. My kind of reward πŸ’œ

  4. It was great to meet you! Thank you for taking our picture and for sharing yours! You are quite talented :).

  5. Well done! And to find a parking spot in the midst of construction vehicles! (Though I’m not sure they were there this week.) Comet is a stellar falls (pun intended).

    • Haha … nice pun. No construction vehicles, but many cars in the lot and roadside in the afternoon. I forget how relentless this climb is. Amping up for my next big one!

    • My first Pika of the year! The hike was a butt kicker, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

    • Thanks, Nancy! I needed help from G on that ID. I’m well rested this morning and thinking I need to write more about this adventure rather than just show off all the gorgeous views. Thanks for writing *
