Road to the Top

This photo shows the Siberia Ridge Road, the hiking trail leading towards Squaw Peak in Squaw Valley. Sitting at around 9000 ft, this trail is narrow, has a steep drop to the right, and seems to lead to the sky. This photo is an attempt to capture the fantastical and mythic feeling one gets while walking here.
