Ritter and Banner over Ediza Lake
Ansel Adams Wilderness, Inyo National Forest, California, 2009
Mount Ritter (center left) and Banner Peak (center right) dominate the view from the shore of Ediza Lake. On this visit to the Ansel Adams Wilderness nearly five full years ago, we had black bears in our camp 3 of the 4 nights. None was interested in us; they only wanted our food, locked safely away in our bear canisters. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
