Latest Adventure...

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.

Latest Adventure...

Postby Hikin Mike » Mon Aug 31, 2009 5:21 pm

Me and James (Exavius) went to Kings Canyon NP Saturday morning to see what we can capture. We hiked a "mainly flat" 1.5 mile round trip at Zumwalt Meadow. There was a couple of boulder fields that we had to climb up/down (remember I can't bend my knees), so it was a bit tricky at times, but I made it. Not quit ready to backpack though. He was nice enough to give me the photos of me so I posted some of those too.

Ansel Adams?

Trying to "get the shot", I had to climb up a rock to capture this. In the process of doing that a banged my "knee"...but I got the shot!

Could have been, she had two fawns. There was another family close by and they had a small dog.

Nice Mike.
On the last shot is that smoke in the sky coming in from the west?
