Beautiful Day! The weather! The views! On a scale to 100 it was a 99+

White-covered mountains lined the road up SR 87 to the trailhead. It was cold and windy at the start. 1200 feet of vertical gain in the first mile and a half warmed up everyone. The wind stopped. Bill pointed out the location of Zimmerman Point across the lake in the Sierra Anchas. Other than a side trip to peak 3559 by Bill and four other hikers, it was on trail. Enough said. The pictures really tell the story.
