Nope. That's pretty much everything north of the Window...   :icon_wink:

It seems like this is a pic of the Basin taken FROM Ward?

How about from the summit of Casa Grande?

Hmm...now that is revealing.

Wow, what a pic.  I can see a nice line up Vernon Bailey from this vantage point--not using North Gully, but just directly up the riudge, around that pouroff.

So, where was the other one taken from--Ward I guess?

From PT 6847, although it appears to me that it was slightly (only a little, I guess for framing with trees blocking the Lodge or whatever from higher up) below the very top on the north side.
Best you ask Lance. His 513MP shot from atop Casa Grande is fantastic!

So s'frog, what is it you really want a picture of, the real Ward Mountain from down in the basin (can't be had with current technology available to the general public); the NPS pseudo Ward Mountain (PT 6847) from down in the basin;  the real Ward mountain from several or at least one good angle; or none of the above?

Just need a roll call of all the people who have stood atop this mysterious Ward Mountain or Pt 6847 or whatever.  They have cred.  All others do not.

Whatever dude.  :icon_rolleyes:

The folks I know who have been up either or both of those peaks don't frequent this board often, so it may be awhile before you get a credible answer.

Somewhere I saw an old ~1950's vintage trail map with a "Ward Mtn Trail" marked along the ridgecrest that starts near the LW1 Campsite.  You can find trail fragments of this trail but it's overgrown with cactus and hard to follow.   TWWG

WATER, It does a body good.

Gosh, I don't have 'cred'.  Not sure what the big deal is or why you are turning the forum members against you.  It's the 43rd highest peak in Texas... that's about all the effort I'm putting into it for you.

Okiehiker is probably one of the folks who has climbed it.

Good morning.  Could anyone give me a photo of Ward Mountain taken from the Basin?  Specifically, from the Lodge?  Thanks.

This was the original post that folks thought they were trying to help you with.

I will ask this politely, although the same courtesy has not been extended to me:

Who deleted my last post and why?

As I understand this forum, there are only three people who could have deleted your post: Richard; David; or you.  Richard didn't do it and in my experience if David had done it, you would know it because he is not shy.  So that leaves two alternatives:  you screwed up and didn't post it to start out with; or, you deleted it.
