How about an after sunset shot during a near full moon night Aug. 1? This was in the meadow down stream from South Fork lake in the Cottonwood Basin.

Hi SM

Nice photo.
How was the smoke from the fire during your trip?

For this trip ( 8-27) the smoke wasn't too bad in the mornings and got a bit worse in the afternoons. Last weekend (9-04) was really clear. I'm glad 120 is open and I don't have to drive around the world to get to Tuolumne. 2 more trips to go and then I'll be ready to do nothing for awhile.... until I go back to my indoor job in Oct. ](*,)

I run 3 REI Adventure Trips http://www.rei.com/adventures/trips/weekend/ca_yose_wend.html, all Th evening to Sun afternoon. One runs in June down Yos. Creek to the Falls and Eagle Peak & back up to the rd. The "High Country Trip" runs July -Sept. & goes from Tuolumne to Cathedral Lk to Sunrise Lakes and out to Tenaya Lk. And we've just added a Half Dome trip http://www.rei.com/adventures/trips/weekend/yhd.html of which I ran 3 this year. So I have 2 more High Country Trips this season. As you can see I visit Cathedral Lake a lot. I will have done 11 of these wkend trips and an 8 day trip in Mineral King with friends by the end of Sept. I'm hanging in there and wondering how long I can keep doing this. I ain't young. And I'm putting together some xc and snowshoe trips to Glacier Pt and Ostrander Hut this winter. I have a bunch of assistants that rotate thru but I'm out there just about every weekend. It beats working in the hospital laboratory during the summer.

Wow SM, I wish I could spend that much time out.
Young/old they are just labels we like to place on ourselves or others, it is about how
you feel and whether you want to except societies narrow restrictions or live free of them
the way you want to live your life according to your expectations and not others.
I met a man several years back in his 80's who does the JMT supported every 2 years in 3
weeks, do you think he was thinking about being old, no.
I see to many people retire and become inactive because they believe that this is
what they are supposed to do, I am not going to fall into this category, I will be hitting
the mountains as long as I can walk, no matter what others may think.

Me, too. Just not sure that I'll always have 14 people hiking behind me. Feels like a small army.
