Eastern Sierra: Pt 5


Eastern Sierra: Day 5 – Piute Pass / Mt Humphreys I love Tang! For some reason, I have never been able to eat, first thing in the morning, and it’s even worse out here… well…unless it was my Mom’s Sunday morning breakfast when I was a kid…I never had a problem with that.

Eastern Sierra: Day 4 – Piute Lake I woke on day 4 knowing it would be an easy day! The hike to Piute Lake was only about a mile or so and was no trouble at all. I wasn’t in any hurry to take off and hung out at Loch Leven until almost noon. Leaving … Continue reading

So…the other day, I’m up on Mt Laguna, I have my camera out…on the tripod…camera equipment out in plain sight…remote in my hand…in the process of taking pictures… And the border patrol drives up and asks – “What are you doing?” I told the border patrol… I just installed a new app on my camera … Continue reading
