Whew. Sounds like quite the mad rush of a weekend, doesn’t it? Looking over my images, have pictures from some of this, but not a whole lot of the rest. Alas and alack. I never want too many photos (too hard to ever come back and really look at them again), but then when you do come back, the holes are sadly apparent.

We can at least look at a few photos

Duck Pass to Duck & Pika Lakes – July 13-15, 2012

2012 really was the best summer in many ways. We did so many awesome things! This winter of 2017 is…less awesome. We are, to date, doing fewer things. Oh well. This should get better with time. However, again, five and a half years ago, Joe and Nathan and I drove up to Mammoth to go on a backpacking trip…

And here are some things we did!

Mammoth and Yosemite, June 2012

Hey I had a baby! …18 mpnths ago. There are lots of photos of that elsewhere. Some five and a half years ago, however, I drove up with Nathan and his parents towards the mountains. Man, I miss the California mountains. This was one of our last few trips before moving to New York.

What did we see??

Eaton Canyon to Henninger Flats – June 10, 2012

This winter is still a bust, more or less, though it looks like we might be getting a hair of a promise of winter on the horizon later this week? Who knows. Anyway, life proceeds apace. Doing various work here and there, not getting out anything like at the level I’d like, but…oh well. People visiting, putting the house together, and just getting stuff done one day at a time! Not too bad. So…instead, perhaps I can do a bit more of the things I used to do, back when I lived near mountains and good weather. In June 2012 Nathan, Joe, Gretchen and I did a 7 mile hike with 1300′ of gain (to 2550′) from Eaton Canyon to Henninger Flats and back again. Mostly on fireroad, but nice for all that, and the exceedingly pleasant forested bit at the type made a nice change up.

We’re walking, we’re walking…

Disneyland May 29, 2012

Heh. California dreaming much? Though really, this Rochester winter is a bust so far. Of course, that means that I am jinxing it, right? Anyway, let’s wind up this time machine again, shall we? So….What can I say? I took the opportunity to take Nathan to Disneyland before we moved away from Southern California. Kip and Glenn were awesome and took us, and I would say that we had, you know, fun. As the kids say. Nowadays. Anyway, we went out for the day and hit both DCA and the Magic Kingdom. Let’s photo!

Shiny happy people?

Mt Baden Powell – May 27, 2012

Happy week after Thanksgiving, friends. Some cold virus has taken it upon itself to fell me most thoroughly this week, so sitting here typing this is one of the more energetic things I’ve done this week. Baby steps! Anyway, a horrifyingly long 3.5 years ago I went on a hike for my birthday, and got to meet up with Dan on his trip over the PCT. I’d gone up Baden-Powell a few times before , but that doesn’t make it a less cool hike to go on. We also saw people flying in gliders. It was a beautiful day. (ETA – this is an 8 mile RT, 2800′ gain hike)
