Later that day we climbed Italy pass and saw you climbing Mt. Julius Caeser. The next day we ran into you in Bear Lakes Basin. We were the guys swimming in Vee lake! It is a small world up in the Sierra.


Small world! That was such a great week in the mountains. I remember you guys trying to swim in that water, freezing cold! Of course the next day we stood directly under ice cold snow runoff on our way down Seven Gables. Vee Lake probably would have been warmer.

Calipidder, We didn't try to swim, we swam! Vee lake was warmer than lake 12,200 in the Ionian Basin.

Why not more entries?

Wondering,

Russ


For me it's either laziness or trying to come up with 3 pictures from 2010, that shows the Sierra.

So....I never took a camera anywhere for a very long time. I just never owned one. A lot of backpack gone yeah, but also extensive general traveling camping and sightseeing all over the US. My parents were the same way Hah. Been traveling my whole life, and started backpacking I think 20 years ago.....sheesh time flies......and the only pictures I took was a rare disposable camera.

My first camera was actually a blackberry phone maybe 2 or 3 years ago. Then I bought an Olympus point and shoot before a yosemite trip in june last year. Did great until taking it to the beach 4 th of july....not even a month later its done. Now my camera is my Droid phone, although I think the blackberry has better color.

I have a lot of fun taking pictures, even on the phone.

So lol, here is a couple from the phone, and one from that stupid camera.

Currently I am a suspended acoustical ceiling installer, (T-bar). Been doing that for almost 8 years now.

I am thinking of getting out of the trade though and getting a job as a trail crew worker or something along those lines.

Hi...I tried to follow the rules by uploading 3 attachments in the same post. The first one seems to load fine. Then on the second one I am asked to log in (again) and my first attachment is lost. When I backspace the web page has "expired." :retard:

So I'll do what others have done...3 photos in 3 posts...


(I tried about 5 times...was logged out, then my password was not recognized...had to leave the site and come back. It turns out that my second attachment was apparently slightly oversized. oops...)
