Lower Sardine Lake, Sierra Buttes in the background:
The same scene closer up. There’s a trail to the summit which I would like to do some day. You can barely see a tower up there in this shot:
Salmon Lake with Sierra Buttes in the background:
Deer Lake, one of dozens within hiking distance, and few people around:
My hiking buddy Jim, in his 80’s. He built his own boat in the Philippines, sailed it to Hawaii, and lived on it 17 years. Every year he wins (in his age group) a rough water swim race in Hawaii, and maintains their web site. He hikes mostly cross country and vague trails. We split up and did different hikes so we could check out more possibilities.
Face to face, I run into this guy!
He’s half akita and half German shepherd. Beautiful dog, no?
