Also, you don't see many people survive a case of HAPE that bad.

Wow! Great story. I recognize one of the buildings in the b & w photo behind the "Popemobile".
Piece of cake.

Wow, what an adventure. Quite ambitious, especially for 1958. I am impressed.

I did the Yosemite High Route in May of 2005. Our trip was a piece of cake weather wise compared to their trip. Check out the picture "Starting out along the power lines near June Lake"

Sorry, the link apparently doesn't work. If you get to my gallery the picture is labeled Yosemite Border Tour
