Name That Peak
July 10, 2013 08:33AM
I was at Huntington Lake this weekend and my wife and I hiked Kaiser Peak. I took a couple of pictures near the top. I can't figure out what peak is in the pictures. The pictures were taken facing north. It might be in Yosemite or just south of Yosemite. I thought maybe some of you super experienced Sierra hikers might know. Thanks!!

I have Picasa but it is trying to add all 20,000 pictures on my computer and I really don't want that.

Thanks...sorry for the trouble!

If you have a Picasa web account, you don't need the Picasa app to upload your photos to your Picasa website. Instead, it's pretty easy to just manually upload the photos you want (not all the 20,000) by using your web browser and Picasa's web browser interface.

WOW! That's much better and so much easier.

If you can ID latitude & longitude from where the photo was taken, this will probably work:

See dropdown where you can input your own coordinates.

And there's a mobile version that you can take with you that can be used offline:

That's Mount Ritter. The river valley in the foreground is the confluence of the North & Middle Forks of the San Joaquin River.

I would presume then that's Clyde Minaret just to the right of Mt. Ritter.

Great shot of Ritter from the south! Not the standard photo of this peak; I like it.

Thanks! I wasn't looking that far away on the map. I thought it might have been Mt Tom. And Peak Finder is very cool!
