Timberline Tarns live up to their name. The tree line ends just above them. The photo detail shows one of the highest stands of pines in the area, just over 11,000 feet. The absolute highest are probably on the shores of Bishop Lake a little further upstream.

Anecdotal only, no photo unfortunately.

While backpacking at Long Lake near Bishop, a weasel ran through our campsite during breakfast. It seemed pretty nonchalant about our presence, but it still moved through and away at a good pace.

Location approximate to Kings Canyon NP. We weren't right on the John Muir trail, but traveling in that general direction. Photo taken before I got to the Palisades view, so I'm guessing on location and alpine lake system.

Edit: it looks like this observation is right on the dividing line between Rana sierrae and R. muscosa. Guessing on the ID too I guess. If anyone can help, please do.
