Here's the house, but note there is also a rider that you have to take my wife too. And no, she doesn't cook or clean, she just inhabits the house. Oh yeah, bring your wallet.

"Simply Awesome pictures PETER !!! More please- How do you enlarge the photos?? I can not get my pictures that big on my "

they are not enlarged - that is actually downsized from the orginal scan size. These are slides I scanned a long time ago on a slide scanner. I don't know the source of your images, but theres no camera that takes images as small as yours.

Do you upload them to BPL? That may also resize them. Mine sit on my server, so I guess I may be allowed to do whatever I do, given I am not taking up bandwidth here at BPL.

For more images, I have to go back to the scanner. There are 5000 slides from those '88-'94 hikes in the Sierras, and there are a lot worth scanning. Problem is that my scanner is an old SCSI interface and all my computers right now don't really have that anymore. Plus, when I do get around to scanning slides again, I want to do it right, which means to get a better scanner. Don't really have time right now to dig into that so I am putting this off.

I will post some digital images from last year, taken off my HD camcorder, which will be quite different, and the colors aren't quite as vibrant.

I'll add a few photos too, from my August 2008 JMT hike. It was a great trip.

Mark, if you hike the PCT you will have hiked the majority of the JMT and you can always take a side trip to Yosemite Valley when you reach Tuolumne Meadows.

Hey Ken the Finger Col is not exactly on the JMT--It is north of Kings Canyon, Finger Peak 12,404ft down to Enchanted Gorge. I did a big loop (80 miles) a few years back to Tehipite Valley- very Remote, only rattlesnakes and Indian petroglyphs and the Necros.

more coming on 03/25/2009 10:54:34 MDT Print View

I finally figured out how to make my old Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus work under XP - now I can go back and scan my old Muir stuff. Just started with the first two days of my '90 JMT 10-day hike - Ultralight before it was cool :-)

I'll post some stuff here in increments as it goes through the scanner, with a whole gallery at my server, too.

more JMT on 03/26/2009 12:18:27 MDT Print View

from my 1990 hike - I am going to scan all images worth scanning and add them to this gallery as I make progress:

JMT 1990

I'm still messing with this gallery software, but it's pretty slick and I'm sure I can figure out how to make the menu work in a way that the images will play sequentially if you don't want to navigate at all, but for now this will do.

Sample shot from the first day of the hike, which was taken about 90 minutes after a pretty strong T-storm that caught us on Parker Pass. Our Route that year started at Mono Pass Trailhead just below Tioga Pass. The photo below was taken late that day south of Koip Peak pass, looking into the direction of Mammoth Mountain.



The hike was pretty fast that year (driven by the constant threat of bad weather for most of the trip), and it was pretty lightweight for the period (if you see our packs, you have to remember the ground pads were regular closed cell pads inside the packs, making them appear stuffed).

I'll post more samples here on the forum as I keep adding slides to the above gallery.

When I'm through with the 1990 stuff, I'll takle the slides from another year on the JMT.
