Some Day 2 pictures. The day starts with the climb of Dead Woman's Pass - the highest point of the trail. You then go down the back side of the pass for lunch, climb another pass in the afternoon, and finally drop down the back of the 2nd pass to camp. I tried to trace the trail with a blue line where I saw it in these pictures to give you an idea of the route. DWP = Dead Woman's Pass, Circled L = lunch spot, R = location of the ruins in these pics.

Great pictures, Boilermaker!  They give a good idea of the scale of the height of the mountains when you see the tiny little line of the trail.  How incredible, thanks!

Wow, those are great. Looks like an epic adventure/hike. What was your impression of the ruins along the way? Were there any that compare to MP or were they all pretty much smaller sites? Was there much rebuilding done on these sites or did you get the impression they were left as found; save for some brush clearing? I know MP has been extensively restored and there were even guys restoring a wall when we were there. As impressive as these structures are, i'd really like to see one that hasn't been rebuilt.
