Hoping to catch glimpse of Telescope

One of the rock formations that I was able to take advantage of to get a better vantage point was these enormous and tall rocks sitting deep north in the area. Although it was not more than Class 3 in climbing rating systems, what made it slightly precarious going up and staying up at the top was the gale of harrowing winds, which never seemed to stop. Over the little humps in the east end of Alabama Hills, I saw the summits of New York Butte and Cerro Gordo Peak under the thick blanket of clouds. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of Telescope Peak, tallest peak in Death Valley, but the view was completely obscured by these rain clouds, which meant only one thing - it was snowing high in the mountains.
