As of 20 August '99
Here are some of the greatest hits of the trip. Sadly, my 35mm camera began to fail without a hint, beginning on day seven. At least it waited until the Muir Trail to die, implying that a less strenuous tour could replace some images at a future time. On the other hand, I don't plan to re-do Lamarck Col, and Muir Pass may never be this snow-free again, so many unique shots cannot be replaced. I sure hope Scott's camera was working at Lamarck Col!
