Default Tim Jones Peak Mar.03/19

Tim Jones Peak named after the leader of the North Shore Rescue, who had passed away. Many owe their lives to him and his team, who found them in many off trail, and sometimes quite hazardous situations. There is a memorial in rembrance of him, a few hundred km up the Seymour Trail from the trail head by the parking lot. Within 3-3/4 hours hiked 10 km return from the trail head to this second peak of Mt. Seymour group. ... It was cold at the parking lot, but pleasant on the peaks. On my return to the parking lot, found a very chilly breeze blowing across from the east.

Stats are basically 10 km return with 750 meters net elevation gain to the second peak; including two areas of elevation loss of 45 to 50 meters each. Snow was hard packed and grippy, and very suitable for microspikes. Even in fresh areas, soft snow on top of hard base was from 15 to 25 cm.

No to belittle your obviously stellar photographic abilities, but I am interested in knowing which camera did you use. I'm impressed by the clarity of the hi-zoom images. Is it a pocketable one?
