It has been a dry winter. Trail Guy has been hiking this week. Wow. This is early early early. This is our friend and neighbor Keith. He is eating an orange on the bridge on April 26, 2013. There doesn’t appear to be any snow. Early early early. The Park is officially opening the gate [...]
Not much snow on Sawtooth. Not much snow in the valley looking toward Farewell Gap. No snow on the south-facing slopes; not much snow on the north facing slope on the Sawtooth trail. Not much snow for March.
Someone took a trip up to Mineral King. It wasn’t me. I was working on The Cabins of Wilsonia. My camera had a nice time. There isn’t much snow. It might be a good idea to pray for a March Miracle in the precipitation department.
Fridays are still for Mineral King, when I have Mineral King information for you. Do you remember reading on my blog back in September when I told you that Trail Guy had a great idea? You can refresh your memory here. Go ahead. I’ll be waiting for you to return. Thanks for coming back! Here [...]
But it wasn’t me because I was drawing The Cabins of Wilsonia. (I know not to begin a sentence with the word “but”. Thanks for your concern about my writing skills.) And the weird spot on my camera is not there this time!! (Sometimes things do fix themselves, contrary to what my auto mechanic says.) I think [...]

. . . except the snow was too deep and we didn’t get there! We unloaded the Trackster around mile 12, about 2 miles below Trauger’s. I think that is where we were. It looks so very different under snow! The Trackster leaves tracks in the snow. Wow, there was so much snow! (There was [...]
Trail Guy is not a peculiar sight in Mineral King. He is puzzling over a peculiar sight in this photo. Words fail me.
Yup. We had cheese and crackers and apple and dark chocolate for Thanksgiving dinner. This was our view: Is there snow in Mineral King? Some in the shade and on the north facing slopes. P.S. Michael smoked a turkey the next day. We had leftovers of almost all the good stuff except pumpkin pie. Feel [...]
Being Thankful for Fall in Mineral King These leaves have been blown or rained or snowed off the trees for several weeks by now but I’m still coasting on the beauty from that weekend in mid October. This is the Mineral King Road with its leaning juniper. The yellow is cottonwood leaves. These are aspens [...]
