Day 4: Picture Peak (13,120 ft)
As the name implies, Picture Peak is a beautiful mountain just to the east of the Sierra crest. Starting at Lake Sabrina we hiked by Blue, Digleberry, Sailor, Moonlight and Echo Lakes approaching Picture Peak from the southwest side. I made a navigational mistake and climbed a steep chute too far to the west. I had to traverse along the west ridge for some time to make it to the summit. A very enjoyable scramble though. As expected the views from the top were outstanding.
Roundtrip stats: 16+ miles, 4000+ ft elevation gain, 7hr15min.
