    yeah turtle!!
    a nice walk in the woods helps me relax and relieves tension....

    the fact i'm dragging a shovel and a body should be irrelevant...

    So: you wanted to remain mysterious for your initial six months in this place, right?

    I didn't wait that long. At my age, I'm supposed to have learned patience. Didn't work that way.

    If I tell myself I'm not in a hurry often enough, sometimes I remember I can slow down. If I was here first, I can tell you be welcome in the Hall. And I will, and I do.

    That was taken at the climb out of Yosemite right at timberline on the way up to Donahue pass which is a 11,056 foot pass on the Muir trail. My first wife and I walked the Muir trail back in the early 70's and got caught in an early season blizzard near Devil's Post Pile at the start of our 2nd week out. We survived (obviously) but never made it past the Post Pile to Whitney. There were a few on the trail that year that did not make it out of that storm

    Mike;

    We live a short 3 hour drive away, so my family has camped many times in Yosemite, it has to be our favorite place to visit. Your one up on me though, I've never been off the beaten path. I know we/I have missed out on some of the more awesome sights that only backpackers will ever get to experience.

    It's true, there are fatalities yearly in Yosemite, some are caused my human error, but then as with yourself, nature plays a hand, and we have to play said hand out the best we can, and hopefully like you, come out the winner.

    I remember one camp out when my dad heated water, carried it to the wash house, and then shaved. It was a really cold, rainy morning.

    Thanks for sharing a bit of history on the pic. I for one enjoyed it.
