We could look down canyon, past the valley in which Mono Lake lies and far into Nevada to the east.
We could look west, where the trail crests over the ridge. A couple of miles beyond lies the Yosemite back country. We have hiked to the park boundary in the past but I am not sure we will again. It is a long way down to Summit Lake at the boundary and, of course, a long way back up.
