Nice shot, but sad how dirty the mountain looks - especially Lib Cap. I can see dust from rock fall on Willis Wall. I could hear constant crashes at Paradise at the same time.

Thanks Jim.

I camped at the Eagles Roost Campground while in this area, and several times during the night I heard crashes. While that is not uncommon in glacial areas, it did startle me.

Best regards, Larry
