mini me in the mighty sierras
When a long time hiking friend stopped by the house to reminisce about a 2010 trip to Mt Whitney, I returned to my photo folders and started reminiscing about the following summer’s trip on the John Muir.
I had walked it several times in sections. After sorting through the pictures, I decided to feature me this time. But as one will quickly notice, the background is far more interesting.
Looking at these photos of myself against the background of the Sierras, it is hard to exclaim, “I am important, I am big, I am special.” No one is there to hear you, and the mountains mock your size and accomplishments and longevity. (Click on any photo to see it larger and in more detail.)
