 LCW Group Hike - Bison Peak in pictures  

Derek already wrote up a fine trip report on his portion of the LCW gathering for Bison Peak so I figured I'd use this trip report to share some of my photographs of the day.

Thanks to Brian for organizing the hike. It was a beautiful day for Feb and a great group. Anticipating the opportunity for some great photographs I hauled my heavy SLR all the way up Bison. It turned out to be a great choice as the summit plateau made for some fantastic pictures. I was off the summit before most of the group arrived but got to take a nice break with Bill for 30 minutes while the rest of the group came down. I'm still trying to forgive Darrin for kicking me off the hike near the end though.

The two hour discussion on the Philosophy of Darrin was the highlight of this trip, hope everybody took good notes!


Fanstastic pictures..

Jon, you got some great shots. Love the one of my favorite place (obviously) and the one right above it with the mountain view in the background. I think it was well worth hauling the big camera.

Thanks for posting


good stuff

I wish I had shown up. These comments about Darrin w/2 r's have me curious.

Derek's favorite place in b&w photo also holds another option/route to get up to the summit. It makes for an interesting and upclose way to experience the rock.

Nice picture report.
