Minerals, this book has been a wonderful work in progress! Ask Dean Fidelman about picture collecting for books from this crazy tribe and our book spans @ 40 years.

Here is my "if a business needs an email for me address". I will look at it today to get yours. Thanks! Did you make that or only photograph it?

Cheers! lynnie

Got it, thanks, Lynne. Feel free to delete your address here.
Email sent. If you donít receive it, let me know.

That is one of the NPS trail signs, and if I remember correctly, itís around Mono Pass, looking towards the southwest, so thatís the Kuna Crest in the ďbackground.Ē If you click back one page on this thread and scroll to the bottom of the page, both Flip Flop and Sir Ed Hartouni have an example of these metal NPS trail signs in their photos.

Minerals, just emailed you. Yes, I know those signs. There's a great one pointing the way to Spillway Lake. Would you allow us to perhaps use your photo? Cheers!

Just checked... Yes, thatís the sign at Mono Pass, at the park boundary. Sure, you can use the photo, but Iíll have to send you a full-res version. Photo was taken Thursday, January 5th, 2012, at 11:57 AM. Thatís the northern end of the Kuna Crest, with Mammoth Peak on the far right. This was during the crazy winter, when it was so dry that Tioga Pass opened back up before Christmas, and stayed open into early January. People were ice skating on Tenaya Lake.

Hereís a photo of the entire sign.

Mono Pass



And here are a few more photos from December and January of that winter.

Dana and Gibbs, and a frozen Dana Fork of the Tuolumne, Dana Meadow


Glacial polish and striations on Cathedral Peak Granodiorite, and the domes and peaks of our favorite playground

Tuolumne Appreciation is a beautiful thread to keep up front!

Thanks Tarbuster for all the fantastic threads, photos and content. You have been at the head of a significant cadre of folks providing outstanding value to the Supertopo community. The list is long but everyone knows who those fantastic creatives are.

The beauty of the mountains will continue to change.
