Lots of good sign information about each of the trails at most junctions.

Turned around one corner and way down there was a view of Clementine! Nice sweeping view of Clementine
The limestone formation called Robber's Roost on the north shore of Lake Clementine has a colorful history from both the Native Americans and the outlaws who inhabited it later. Robber's Roost   Robber's Roost up close

From the high spot we could see all the way to the Carson Pass area.
Nice views of the Carson Pass area
Walking across the 730' Foresthill bridge was a (sic) highpoint of the hike. Even for those of us who don't particular care for sudden heights.
Our last major milestone
Pretty amazing views from up here, and the fact that I released my deathgrip on the railing long enough to get this shot.
Long way down
Looking back across the bridge we just made our way over.
