Ascent Trip ReportElizabeth Wenk, in her book on the JMT, stated that if you only take one side trip, it should be to Tawny Point. I have to agree (although I would like to take a LOT more side trips). The views are stunning, 360 degrees. You are the local highpoint, but you have the view of all the larger peaks around you for many miles.
