The way we were...

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.

Jimbo,

1. Wish I'd made it to 9797 this year. I was within 1/2 mile of it! Darn. Looks pretty.
2. Don't remember the flannel. Sorry!
3. Some people age very well :wink:

Lisa,
1. A good reason to re-visit the area.
2. Now that I think about it, it was hidden under the down jacket, semi-retired :D
3. :wink:

See the cotton clothing? This is the trip when I got full-on hypothermia. In 60-degree conditions. #cottonkills

I assume the fires have something to do with it. Sad season...

Ahh, memories. Great to look thru this.

My first visit to the Sierra (even California) was in 1989. I came from Europe and had a singular goal - getting up the Nose on El Capitan. It took three days and was not as bad as it had looked when I cleared Wawona tunnel and saw the Big Stone for the first time a month earlier.

That year I stayed in the valley for 3 months - dodging rangers and changing identity many times. Not having a vehicle made the underground existence doable.

All my old photos are slides, any advice on slide scanners? Thanks, Harlen.

do a search forums on slide scanners. There are recommendations on options.

or: a google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=35mm+ph ... e&ie=UTF-8

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Thanks Maverick, the forum [viewtopic.php?f=17&t=10187&p=103590&hilit=scanning#p76880] has been a huge help. I'm still researching the range of slide-scanning possibilities.

Here's a photo someone sent to me from our Asian Mountain trip in 1987. Note the tattered clothes- traveling on a shoestring.
