Mountainman who swims with trout, and wrestles bear

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.

Mountainman who swims with trout, and wrestles bear

Sadly, I think I will have to expose the Artiste-Poseur Markskor.

Passing though Tuolumne Meadows, I thought I would nick into the store to say hello, and pay homage to the highly reputed artiste, and HST fellow- Markskor, who works there. So I did, and there he was. He may "swim with trout" every so often, but he looks more like Mountainman who wrestles bear. I put out my regular-sized hand to shake his... with fear, as it was swallowed whole, and I knew this was no artiste. I have no doubt that this man is a stonemason when not resting up in the store. Markskor could not use a paintbrush with those paws, so either he somehow creates his delicate paintings with a trowel, or we've been had, and it's a talented wife or girlfriend who's the painter. Oh well. ;)

In fact, it was very nice to make his acquaintance.

The paintings he posts here are actually done on 4x8 sheets of plywood...

Just kidding. Nice guy, and nice to have a friend at the store--although I have never seen him there with time on his hands. That's a non-stop gig!
