Always a Second Chance

Ansel Adams Wilderness, CA

I was immediately awestruck by the pristine beauty of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. This is California at its absolute finest. Here you see the iconic peaks of Mount Ritter (13,149 ft) and Banner Beak (12,936 ft) known collectively as the Minarets, reflected in morning alpenglow from a high altitude tarn. I had scouted this location the previous day and this was taken at sunrise. Photo © copyright by Michael Greene.
