Couple more images:
[Panoramic View South from Lipalian Summit. Long Ridge center left is Protection Mountain I scrambled in 2012
On the other side is delightful alpine meadow that begs for overnight; Pulsatilla Mtn. is relatively straightforward ascent from there. It's a trip I've been thinking about for quite some time now]

[Very colorful Purple Mound; extremely simple photo, but I really like the contrasts]
[One more of Unity Tarn; can't quite remember such a peaceful and compact alpine pocket. This would be faster way btw to reach Unity Peak, instead of going over Lipalian / Purple Mound. I've been thinking about doing loop around Redoubt Mtn --more or less Pumpkin Traverse-- and would approach this way]
It was a stellar day indeed. One last note -- this valley is prime griz bear environ. I've seen huge recent bear scat. Make lots of noise if you go.
