ClematisI was the first one up the trail and enjoyed the solitude and quiet.RockcressArnicaThe rain brings out the saturation of the burned out forest floor. Engadine in the background here.Lillian Peak comes into view in the distance.Just past Buller Creek Falls and just before the forks to North (L) and South (R) Buller Pass. Buller Creek Peak is visible rising at right here.The South Buller Pass trail is lovely - especially the section through the recently burned out forest.Buller Creek Peak looks pretty high from here - it's not a tiny peak.As much as I enjoy hiking in nice weather, there is something about the moody atmosphere that appeals to me too.Nearing the back bowl just under South Buller Pass which is right of center distance here. Buller Creek Peak at upper left and Lillian Peak rising into the clouds at upper right.At this point there was zero indication, or expectation of seeing any sunshine today!Nearing the summit.Great views over Buller Pass to South Kidd and Guinn's Pass with Lillian rising dramatically at right.Great views over Buller Pass to South Kidd and Guinn's Pass with Lillian rising dramatically at right.Great views over Buller Pass to South Kidd and Guinn's Pass with Lillian rising dramatically at right.A panorama looking east (L) and south includes Mount Kidd, Kidd South, Guinn's Pass and Lillian Peak (L to R).Unnamed summits to the east over North Buller Pass towards Mount Bogart.Looking west (L) and north off the summit includes the second summit, Buller, Red Peak, North Buller Pass and Bogart rising into the clouds at distant right.Mount Buller looks impressive from this side.
