I had originally planned for an overnight trip to Mt. Langley, but after several cancellations, I decided that I would just take on several day hikes solo. Looking at a list of possible hikes in the area, I decided on Mono Pass, with the possibility of a little class 2 to Mono Pass Peak.

Here are some highlights. Clicking on any of the photos will bring you to my full trip report and gallery (~50 photos).

Ruby Lake:
   

Looking across Mono Pass towards Mt. Starr:
   

Summit Lake:
 

Getting closer to the peak:

Possibly my favorite view in the Sierra. Red & White Mtn, Red Slate Mtn in the distance I believe:
     
 
Mt. Morgan (?) as I head back to the TH:

Thanks for posting this report and those great photos. You have solidified my plans for my next trip to the Sierra. I plan on staying at Tom's Place and hiking the four great trails:

Mono Pass
Little Lakes Valley to Morgan Pass
Tamarack Lakes
Hilton Creek Lakes

The only bad part is that it will be Summer, 2016, before I can travel to the area. Well, that gives me something to look forward to.

Looks like a fun trip Richard.

Red was intended route, blue was actual route:

Very nice photos! I really like the last two. Tough to beat the Sierras.
