Unicorn Peak and Cockscomb Peak, Yosemite National Park

Some years ago I stood with my young daughter in the far northwest end of Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park, watching a group of mule deer graze and enjoying the grassy expanse, when we turned around and realized we had this great view of Unicorn Peak (10,880′ left) and Cockscomb Peak (11,065′ right). I find these to be two of the more distinctive granite rock formations in the Yosemite High Sierra. Both peaks are on my bucket list, not having bagged either yet.
