Did you expect photos from China? Well this Chinese Wall is in the Bob Marshall Wilderness of Montana. The "Bob" as well call it here is just west of my home. The Bob is a continuous tract of wild country that is considered the crown jewel of the American Wilderness system and is the largest wilderness in the contiguous 48 states. The Chinese Wall is a 1,000 foot high cliff that extends for 12 miles. The fist photo is the north end of the wall near Larch Hill Pass. It was made in September 2010. After one day of snow and another one with low clouds, the sky cleared. Early morning sun slanted though the trees and illuminated the wall. My Lake (it's not my lake but My Lake! ) is just east of the Chinese between Larch Hill Pass and Spotted Bear Pass. I spent a little too much time in the warm morning sun photographing the wall and didn't get to My Lake until almost noon. But the blue sky and golden larches were too irresistible to pass up. I had to stop and photograph them even though I still had 14 more trail miles to walk to my intended camping spot for the night.
