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.

Sierra Nevada has two meanings in my household and office. This is one of the other walls of the living room at home. Below the bar mirror is the huge collection of special glassware for beer and wine.

Note to Eric: This isn't an attempt to market my house through HST. Nevertheless, I spent the last three decades trying to bring the Sierra to myself. My log home is furnished with a lot of mountain artistry and I tried to create my own Sierra lake and forest in the back yard. We had some professional video and photography of the house done as we plan to sell it and retire soon. I hope the mods will allow members to share a bit of what we have been privileged to enjoy. I will post more close up detail of What's on my Wall in coming days.

Well as a single guy without wife and family, can use all my wall space. I have far less space in my 2-bedroom 2-story 60s era townhouse than I have long accumulated junk filling it. Thus am hopelessly overwhelmed by where to fit everything in. But do find wall space for photographic prints.

As a photographer for decades have always had many prints on my walls. In this era most are 3 foot large format Lightjet prints from 4x5 film drums scans. Also have 3 each interconnected 3 wide by 7 foot high exhibition panels (the type one sees in art fair booths) in my living room with large print.s

And as a Sierra backpacker have also had lots of topo maps on walls. Above my living room couch is a large custom topo map I made 2 years ago of the Upper Kern Basin that I have a permit for end of July.

A few things from my walls. In my preview of the post, some of the pictures show up sideways, but orient themselves correctly in a new window when I click on them. More to come as I have time.

My wife made canvases out of some of my pictures, but my personal favorite is my map of SEKI where I draw a line everywhere I've walked. So many gaps to get me excited!
