The perfect format for a hiker alone …
I call this photo: Naked Lunch

Close Encounters, anyone?
• Mouse over, detail will pop up. Or…
• Click to expand image, then mouse around from there.
• Be patient. Slow to load. But … then you can see in full natural glory.

Humbly I will ask, are these the first PanoSelfies? Ever?
Well … maybe.
These were taken in August, 2013. Selfies, panorama cameras, and panoramas on iphones are well known and established. But PanoSelfies? Certainly I had never seen any before I took these. If not for the twin motivations of the vast beautiful horizons of the Sierra Nevadas plus the simple reality of being on a solo backpack trip, i doubt it would have occured to me. But it did … and hey … what a rather marvelous photo concept. Dontcha think?

11 Glen Aulin (2 mb downrez)
If you ever wanted to travel back in time to see Yosemite without cars and roads, just hike down to Glen Aulin and here (we called this spot Sunset Rock) you can see in magnificent miniature what the entire valley once was like. The first time Cathy and I hiked here, there was a film crew and 3 actors re-enacting exactly that. On display: the Tuolomne River, the granite bowls and domes, all untouched but for the few foot trails running across and thru it. A memorable, magical place

Three lovely lakes leading up to a lovely meadow. I vowed to swim in them all and sure enough, had the chance to do so before ascending Cloud’s Rest. Mmmmmmmmm
