Milky Way over Minaret Lake

 

I was so tired after hiking up to this point. After we got up to the top and set up camp, I set my alarm for 11:30PM and went right to bed. As I hiked out to this lookout point under the stars, the moon rose over the distant mountains and illuminated the towering cliffs over Minaret lake in the Ansel Adams WIlderness.
