Came across this photo from a backcountry ski trip in the sierra. For the life of me can't remember where I took it from or what mountain the pic is of?

Huh?
Huh?

I want to say it is from south of Convict Canyon looking north but not sure.

I am thinking Tobacco Flat, looking over at Morrison and Mono Jim Peak.

Yeah, that's it. Smart ass. I think the ridge in the upper left of the pic would be an obvious land mark.

looking over at Morrison and Mono Jim Peak.

Maybe. Don't recall Tobacco Flat as a place I've been, but Morrison might be right.

Yah, Old Man's Bowl is on the right, Morrison above in the background.
This was taken above the moraine, up on the flanks of McGee.
Tobacco Flat is the name of the drainage once you pull out of Convict .
