Yeah, the Kalatarian search. wasn't it back to the base camp for the world series, beer and steak during that thing? I summited Gray peak the day they found him the poor bastard. I'll bet Russ could chime in on that one.

Nice shot of the summit crack to the top of Echo #9..

Hooray for THE Sierra Nevada!!

No, but to be honest zippy the pin head interrupted many of those shots so they didn't really come out...:>)
I'll try to find 1 or 2 that did.

No, both pics are from the Kearsarge area.
With the Mart Man.

Here's one from the Leap...

This is a cool thread.
Headed to the East Side today.
Can't wait.
Be in Bishop thru the weekend, if anyone's around.
Those pics of the Leap - and is one of those last ones Fallen Leaf? - sure do make me homesick down here in crappy SoCal.

TMJ--That first photo is of a painting, isn't it? Do you know the name or artist?

The rest of those photos brought tears to my eyes, they're so beautiful...and I miss the mountains so much.

Thanks for this thread.

It's Alfred Bierstadt. I have a painting of his staring me in the face on the far wall in my office. Whenever I need a mental break, I look at it and it takes me away.

Now if I can only get there for real...
