markskor - Found your water bottle at Vogelsang Pass

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.

markskor - Found your water bottle at Vogelsang Pass

It was a pleasure to meet you on the trail above Merced Lake. You mentioned that you thought you'd left your water bottle (the one with a blue top and two stripes of silver duct tape) at the top of Vogelsang Pass. Indeed you had - I spotted it right away. A much loved water bottle with duct tape and many memories attached I am sure. Took it with me out of the back country.

Rather then take it with me home, email you, get your address, find a box for it and take it to the postoffice, I went another route. I left it for you in Yosemite. Its tucked in the back of bearbox #1 at Sunrise trailhead at the end of Tenaya Lake. You mentioned you were heading for another Yosemite trip soon, so I figure you can pick it up then. If you don't it will be cleaned out and thrown away at the end of the season.

Also a pleasure meeting you too…
Glad I was going down that damn hill, and not up, like you.

About the water bottle...thanks for finding it, but, since my backpack is not currently wireless, Internet-ready, I did not find out about where you found and stashed it until I got home. (It appears that I passed right bye it a few times too.) Sorrowfully, I am not planning to get up to Tuolumne again until later next, if anyone wants an old nalgene bottle...feel free.
No big deal...but thanks for trying.
