Hitchens Gulch

12. A Panorama from near the little pond.  Howard Mountain is at far left, Mount Cirrus is left of center and Lead Mountain is right of center.  Just past this line of trees on the left side marks the spot where you can begin a rock hopping climb up to Lake of the Clouds.  Roach describes a path leading toward a visible waterfall to the south.  I didn't see a waterfall and the remaining climb up the partially snow covered rocky slope looked tough so I didn't continue into the boulder field.  Perhaps another day.  Super Size It!  (219kB).
