the sierras are calling and I must go
I looked through the photos I took of trips into the Sierra Nevada. It was like re-reading journal entries of times past. Dwelling on those moments made me want to re-live them. Wanting to re-live them made me grasp for those moments that had disappeared in my memory.
The French word sillage is a good word for the experience: it means “following in the wake of something; a slipstream; following in the footsteps.” It is a word for remembering small moments destined to be lost.
The following photographs represent a mélange of experiences from many spots in the Sierras, including from the John Muir Trail. I encourage you to take a moment and step through each one of them.
