A couple of Kodachromes from August 1982, Merced Peak Fork in the Clark Range, from the days when you pitched your tent on the grass. It just started a downpour when we put up the tent. The visibility was about 100 feet. The rain stopped and we discovered this incredible view. I took the second photo after dinner before I hung the food from the tree in the foreground.

I've been meaning to get back there for years and not made it. The funny thing is in 1982, the storm hit and we said this looks like a good place. We loved it so much, we layed over there the next day and day-hiked to the snowfields around Red Peak Pass (t was 1982) . In our memories, it remains one of our favorite campsites. It's now one of those "when we retire . . ." trips since the next two years are kind of set.
