This is looking back up Lippincott pass. We’d been heading down this trail for an hour two from Racetrack. Lots of narrow switchbacks and a couple of washouts, tricky to cross, requiring high clearance, four wheel drive, and low gear with a trigger finger gas pedal. A wrong move and one could experience a deadly drop off the side of the mountain.
Personally, I love the intricate swirls and globular mounds of metamorphic rock surrounding you for as far as the eye can see. Layers and layers folding and grinding through millennia.
