Red Lake Peak 10,061'
Red Lake Peak is about a mile north of Carson Pass and can be climbed by hiking north on the Pacific Crest Trail as it crosses Carson Pass and then heading east up the west slope. This view looks south to Elephant Back(L) and Round Top(R).
This unremarkable view to the southeast is really remarkable because the west wind was blowing a steady 30 knots. As the air hit the mountain and uplifted, clouds kept forming in the same area. The clouds quickly blew across the mountain and dissipated as they moved over the desert.
West to Caples Lake.
To the north is Desolation Wilderness with Lake Tahoe on the right.
