4 Peaks in 5 Days

I haven’t posted too much lately mainly because the photo class I am taking this semester requires more long-term stories.  And, POYi judging has just ended after 3 weeks.

So, I am digging back into the archives and posting a couple of the panoramas I took while driving home from Reno this summer.  In 5 days, I made it to the top of 4 peaks in 3 different states.  Although I have to admit I cheated with one peak– Mt. Evans– and was able to actually drive my car all the way to the top and hike the last 100 yards…  Anyway, I took a panorama at the top of each peak I made it to and this is the result (Click on the images to see them bigger):

Mt. Tallac, 9,735 feet, South Lake Tahoe, CA

Mt. Wheeler, 13,063 feet, Great Basin National Park, NV
