What does your HST Avatar represent?

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.

What does your HST Avatar represent?

Postby rlown » Sat Jul 02, 2016 8:26 am

Just wondering over a cup of Peet's coffee..

What does your HST avatar represent?

Does it mean a favorite place, a great moment, a big fish, a scary moment of a class 3ish move?

Mine represents a great day at Evelyn Lk after a successful day of fishing.

Interested,

Russ

The last day of a trip in 2008, my last trip I had to take off time from work to complete. It was with my cousin who is about 20 years younger the me and it was the first time we had seen each other in about 30 years. Remarkably we got along great as he tolerated my slowness but like others (some on this forum) didn't treat me with the respect someone my advanced age deserves!

Mine is from a favorite absurdist shirt (which I still have). It makes me think about two of my best friends that had the same shirt, carefree college days, lots of adventures and time to do more or less as I pleased. Pretty much the halcyon days of youth.

Mine is about the way the mountains bring me close to God.

Mine is the biggest fish I've caught in the High Sierra. Giant char yes, Giant brookie no.
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html

On Cloud's Rest, having the last dinner of a 60-day trip in 2013. I hiked down the JMT, explored Kings Canyon high country, and then took the SHR back to the valley.

hmm. Maybe Eric should have defaulted everyone to the Internet Troll avatar :) Gives everyone a good reason to be creative then.

It's from my first trip in the Sierra with my wife. Stoneman Meadow in YV in 2014.

Mine is just ... me, happy to be out in the wilderness! I'm the photographer, so there are few photos of me from my trips. My wife took this one while we were hiking on the Big Island of Hawaii.
