What is on your wall? | High Sierra Topix  

What is on your wall?

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 is on your wall?

What reminds you of our outdoor experience? what have you put there to remind you of when you go out?

I work from home most of the time. so. I have this. left to right around the wall.

misc 2013 002.JPG
what i look at above my desk every day.


My dad did the deer head from a Utah hunt in '88. yes it was mine.. The next to the right is a picture my friend did of Virginia Lk out of cold canyon. Before they gill netted the trout. The last is a Larry Hayden print of Mallards in flight. Pretty much gives my background and trying to find a balance. I like to hunt and fish. a given. Just want to see it sustainable.

No maps on the wall.. those happen on the desk with annotations.

Anyone else?

I don't have maps on the walls anymore. My lady put an end to that! But she did put up a couple of my pictures that she likes taken of the scenery of upper convict creek

I am a pastor and worship leader. I use the photos I take in the backcountry for backgrounds in PowerPoint so I have constant reminders. On top of that, I live just outside of Sonora, CA, so the mountains are all around me... Calling to me.

Our house has a stairway with this curved lower wall above the living room. This is a pretty long curved wall. This is adorned with laminated copies of the Seki-JMW topo map. This meant buying two copies because one of the maps is double sided.

On other walls of the house I have several big black and white prints of various peaks of the High Sierra that were taken by my dad and developed in his home darkroom.

I have some of these in my Fresno State office, too, as well as some photos of my kids holding trout they caught, and a photo of my dad holding the summit register atop his last 14er: Mt. Langley in 1995.

Beer themes are also prominent: the same living room that has the wrap-around Seki-JMW map also has a Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. bar mirror above the shelves that house the huge arsenal of beer and wine glasses. My office at work also has various beer themes (including some Photoshopped "custom" logos we've created for my research group), and lots of photos from geology field trips and various gatherings.
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

The walls of my humble abode are too cluttered to have any mountain scenery. :\

Below is my Facebook cover pic, however. It's the group of unnamed peaks that fringe the western edge of Granite Park. They make my mouth water and my muscles twitch (especially the one at the far left with the tasty couloir and nice class 3-4 pitch to the summit) :nod:

It should be some of my beautiful art pieces, it's almost as good as being there. :unibrow:

If I had spare cash, i would adorn the rest of the wallspace with you and other artists from this forum.

Pink Sunset comes to mind.

From an Oregonian friend/artist. You probably can't see the banana slug crawling down it's nose.

Yeah, 'Pink Sunset' would look good there. 10' of wall. lots of room. hmm.

OK, rlown, ya got me with this one. Love the range of responses posted so far! :D Here's mine. . .
Having just set up my office/den in our new Oregon home, the "hallowed" corner of the room includes, left to right, a Raven Images map of Oregon (but that's another story), four photos I selected to print from my 8-day solo in Ansel Adams Wilderness in 1988, and the Raven map of Yosemite & the Central Sierra. But tacked to the wall out in the garage (they need bigger space) are my maps of summer field work done back in '64 on the Sierra NF and '65 on the Sequoia/Inyo. Those two contain a lot more memories! Oh, and I should mention the framed, commemorative poster of the 2nd annual Snake Rodeo in 1967 from Limon, Costa Rica, that adorns the shop/studio wall; that was the year I trekked across the Central American Isthmus (shameless self-promotion!) :rolleyes: Honest!
Let 'er Buck! Back in Oregon again!
