Excessive focus on the smelter stack....my favorite man-made object in the park. When I saw the shadeow of the crown on the ground, I got the idea for taking the pictures of it eclipsing the sun:

Panamint Pass -> Ballarat -> 2000 ft in Pleasant Canyon....15 miles, 7000 ft descent. By the time I was heading up from Ballarat, I wanted to drop my backpack and pick it up on the way out. But I decided that would be cheating.
