Here is a better picture of the landscape towards Jo-jo lake.
I am standing North of the 911 pond. a willow thicket in the foreground.
The black line above that is the beginning of the moraine. And really the end from the glacier's point of view.
Here in my neck of the woods the glaciers came from the South, the coast.
You see how probably melt water, cut a little trench in it.
The trail goes through that trench. But first follows the white patches. One of them the steep hill.
The glacier made the peak so steep. And it is as pointy as it looks, I sat on top a few years ago, and didn't dare to stand up. The mountain on the right, which i had the honor of visiting too, was the only one around here, that peaked out, when all was ice-fields.
