I took these pictures on a 4-day backpacking trip with Ed and Chris in the John Muir Wilderness in August 1999.

Here is a map with our route highlighted. You can see where this area is on a larger map.

I also made a map with clickable arrows, pointing in the direction of each photo. The tip of the arrow indicates where I was standing when I took the photo. Note that I added these arrows two years after the hike, so some of the locations may not be precise.

You may also want to check out the zoomable Topozone map of the same region.
