Fanastic photos.
I was amused to see on your photo No. 13 a good and impressive view of Peak 18, 13,472 ft. To my surprise I climbed the center part in the dark (July) when I lost the way when going up Windom (supposedly via Twin Lakes). As with Sunlight this involved some caving. Windom and Sunlight were technically a bit of an anticlimax but the views more than made up for this. I envy you the snow.
