I did a great quick tour today on my lightweight race gear. Up Rock Creek again. After a fairly long slog up the Rock Creek road to Mosquito Flat, I veered right and headed up to Ruby Lake.
The picturesque Bear Creek Spire.
The skinning was pleasant up this creek channel to Ruby Lake.
The stunning Ruby Wall.
Ruby Lake and the Ruby Wall
Looking back down to Ruby Lake and up towards Mono Pass.
Lots of snow and fine alpine scenery up around 11,000' with Mt Abbot, The Petite Griffon (spire in the notch) and Mt Mills.
Open water spots are growing at inlets and outlets.
The snow was still firm enough to easily skate the lakes and meadows back to Mosquito Flats.
