Priscilla Peak; from the ridge

Above the switchbacks, from 4,800 feet to about 6,000, trail 433 follows a steep ridge for a couple of miles to a mile or so below the peak. It is mostly hidden in heavy timber but happily sheltered from the wind, a pretty trail but without clear views of the surrounding terrain until the ridge top opens up and accommodates views to the north and east that are mesmerizing. I was captivated by the sun, the clouds and the sky as you can see in the following photos, which are offered with no further comments.
