Approaching the summit of Parker Peak

DB and I headed back to Yosemite for a long hike to Parker Peak and Mount Wood out of the Mono Pass trailhead. With an easy and pleasant, level(ish) approach all the way to Parker Pass, the trail lost a little elevation as it passed by some charming lakes and then made its slow way up to Koip Peak Pass. From there, Parker was a short hike away.

Beyond, Mount Wood beckoned me...and I answered. A very minor lump, it's a summit barely worth visiting.
