As promised in the “Into the High Country” post, here are a few of the photos taken by Judy-of-the-white-crash helmet.
The first image is climbing up the Bennison Spur on day one of the trip. As I noted in the book, it was a mighty steep climb, which I think you can tell from the photo, but it also afforded us fabulous views. The next two shots are Bryce Gorge, with the waterfall, which we saw on the second day, and another fall from the third day—both indicative of the kind of splendor with which our days were filled.
The final two shots are the view from the top of Mt. Wellington and lunch at Lake Tarli Karng. The shot of Tarli Karng makes it fairly clear that our descent to the lake was steep. We had come down on the side of the lake to the left as you look at the photo. So as glorious a location as one might imagine, but not easy to get to.
