I've always wanted to ski in there to witness a Tehipite spring! One of these years....

24 years ago...on the rim of Tehipite Valley. Sporting my Air Jordans; an experiment, they were great for rock climbing, but terrible as trail hikers. Both of my big toe nails bruised and have never been the same. I'd quit my crappy job in SF and was headed into the Middle Fork for 10 days with a friend. He fished all day while I explored and photographed this pristine habitat with my two Canon F-1's, a bunch of big heavy lenses, a huge tripod and about 60 rolls of film. It seems like just yesterday! Vintage Kodachrome 64. July 1987.

"It seems like just yesterday!"

tell me about it - how time flies...

here's one more from like 32-34 years back...
not sure where, it may have been George Lake in the Kaiser wilderness cuz i used to hang out there on lots of weekends cuz it was a short 4 mile hike:

remember when those cutoff's with slits up the side used to be popular?
then daisy duke started to wear them & that put an end to men wearing them - LOL
