Fever? Get yourself tested, Torty. CoVID is still a possibility.

No fever, just the cabin. At least I can isolate at home, not in a hotel room. :D

Hope there's plenty to do in your garden so you don't get too bored.

Ooooh, there's plenty to do - just not the fun stuff.

I said NOT the same quadrant. It's in a very different part of the state.

Rip snorter of a clue, NNW. That's about the only thing I was sure about. :wink:

Can I just say that it is a beautiful photo.
The trees make me think the SE corner - in areas I have not been - like the Snowy Range.

Not Snowy, and not SE, but you're down in the right half and slowly getting closer. And you've been fairly close to this spot. It's a photo that could have been taken nearly fifty years ago if I'd had a camera.

We're in the right NP now, but it's not Wedge. This isn't Abel, although one does pass it on the way to some classics.

That scree looks very familiar. Is it on Cathedral Mountain? If so, maybe from Mt Nereus?
