East End of Rundle

When we first climbed the EEOR in 2001 we took few photos, but this time we took our time, making frequent stops to look around and take out our cameras. Indeed, if I hadn't stopped to look behind at one point, I would have missed seeing a mountain goat!

Well along the trail, the trees begin to fall away.

Sweetflower Rockjasmine (thanks to Ed Hergott for identifying it)

The views open up, but the summit is still far off.

We kept to the right but came down the gully (hidden on the left).

Looking back, a mountain goat appears in an area we had passed.

Ha Ling and Lawrence Grassi fill the background.
