Tucki Mountain as seen from near Emigrant CG where I started
I believe this is the Tucki mine road. I followed it for a short distance into the hills.
This is where the Tucki mine road enters the hills. I took the wash to the left to maintain a more direct heading.
My car is just visible as a white speck above the cactus in the full size version of this photo.
I took one of the ridges toward the right in this photo
The top of the mountain has a huge crater. Oh wait, this is an ant hill.
The ridge continues up from right to left in this photo
Looking back down from a short distance up the ridge
One of the ridges further to the north appears more interesting
Lone Pine Peak, Mount Whitney, and the Sierra crest is visible to the West
Telescope Peak. The ridge I came up is visible in the foreground.
Snow Nymph and Calhiker were up here just a few weeks earlier.
GPS seems to be reading a bit low today. Usually it's closer than that (assuming the summit elevation of 6726 feet is correct).
Halfway down the ridge has a few rocky outcroppings
At this point I debated whether to drop into the wash to the left or continue down the ridge. I continued down the ridge though the wash may have been better.
Back to my car just before dark. Tucki appears in the background.
