"Modern Gonzo" is a real good example of how to screw your video up. My advice is to shoot much less of yourself and more of the scene because most viewers don't care about your mug or most of your stupid comments!

It's a "nice" place, if you like "plain food."

The cook's name is Chiloe and he is a marvelous whistler, kind of like the Mono wind; and Nicely's is year-round dependable, like the Mono wind.

There are neither fish tacos nor Mono Cone chili dogs in November.

You have to choose the right rock type or you pay dearly.

That was the best advice I had from Ron on both the rock climbing and the "rock climbing." It's true, that I prefer the chunkier types.

I used my time wisely and I only drove when I wanted to drive.

I pulled over to let azzhats be themselves on someone else's azz.

The West Walker was not running but just barely hobbling.

The South Fork of the American couldn't have supplied Kyburz.

Calaveritas Creek was a calamity.

And the Snow Flake was a bit on the dry side, as well.

hey there say, mouse... wow, what a neat road trip...

looks like it was time well spent, too!

road trips are twice as fun, when you can also go visit, and
when the weather is well, ... :)


*say, are the dreamcatcher feathers, stuck? they are supposed to hang downward, but when i mail them, they sometimes get stuck on the frame
wrong, :O

Two really fine mounts.

I'm just gonna say that a lady who prides her work with making-up cadavers for open-casket viewing is an artist in much the same way as Ron.

Ron A. is one of the types known as auto-didactic. He instructs himself in that which interests him and enjoys both the experience of learning and the satisfaction of it. Abe Lincoln was an auto-didact. Ben Goode (Etiquette for Rednecks: Weddings, Funerals, and Picnics) is another one.

I'm trying to auto-didact my way into photograph-ph-phy.

I keep forgetting to check the auto-focus and manual focus settings and I lost a bunch of CLIMBING SHOTS today because of that, but I managed to keep a few.

First, though, on my way through So. Tahoe I came across an old filling station on US 50 that had these old in-process re-stored cars parked in the lot.

I got run off! It's plainly posted, as you can see, but the lot is wide open, there is an office which sells lubricants and some other things, but I was told by Squirrel at Strawberry STation that the guy's out of his mind.
He had a similar run-in.

He didn't have rocks thrown at him.

I didn't finish the photos from the road trip yet.

I took another while the weather's set fair.

I got to take a five-miler after six p.m. last evening along the north side of the Merced R. from the gov't warehouse (on Foresta at the lowest El Portal bridge) down to the bridges at the Ferguson Slide, below the South Fork.

The moon was a full quarter-moon, It had just come over the south ridge-tops, and lit my way beautifully. I fetched up at the slide at about 1:30. I'd stopped at a couple of spots, mainly to entertain my blond friends from Chico, but not for long, I was out for the enduro run, no water till the pavement ended, I told myself. That was a good carrot-on-a-stick maneuver, plus I wasn't tempted to try to take any pix, it being time-wasting with no tripod. And the beers took care of the thirst. And the river keeps you from feeling it's necessary to keep hydrated, plus it's late at night, etc-etc.

The sounds on the river last night--
better than the sights.

Walker has his head down
listening to the river
revealing his thoughts.

I would hear sounds AHEAD of me
bouncing off a cliff
Which were really sounds behind me
If you catch my dright.

I was very lucky to have gotten a ride WITHOUT USING MY THUMB OR ANY OTHER DIGIT, neebee...

There was a guy in an older Astro van who was kind enough to ASK ME if he could help as I stood around with my jaw slack and my eyes vacant, gazing up the river of FAST RETURN.

I was back at the car in a flash and I dashed to the upper Tunnel parking lot to await the sunrise in blissful slumber, lulled by DREAMCATCHER TWO, still here, not lost, looking as good as one might expect after six months in the sun and moon.

Thanks for the trinket, shaddokiddo.
