Show yourself! | High Sierra Topix  

Show yourself!

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

The weekly watercolor artist, Robert Dvorak, at the Yosemite Art Institute asked me if I would sit for him after class.

Where's the bong????

It is incredible what you guys do with those watercolors Mark. I have the Upper & Lower Yosemite Falls watercolor you gifted me hanging in my bedroom (please keep your "about time something hung was in that room" comments to yourself).

Now thats pretty cool indeed Mark. I didnt check, but I'm guessing your the only poster in the "Show yourself" topic that has their image as a water color. Very nice indeed!!
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

My friend surprised me and pulled a couple of Heines out of his pack. They were even COLD! This is what pure happiness looks like:

I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

FNG checking in.

Hi, I'm Randy and I'm an alcohol.... nevermind wrong forum.

Orange County born and raised. Been hiking/backpacking for a couple of decades. Getting ready to do the HST from Sequoia to Whitney in August. I was just introduced to this forum and thought I'd say hi before I start posting and asking questions and stuff.
