Many times people have asked me what the JMT looks like in winter; here are some photos from the Bighorn Plateau.



While quite east of the JMT, this is what the snow looks like near Pine Creek Pass. Looking west to north so east and south facing aspects.

Well, I’ve been off the grid for a while.  Belated thanks to Spellbinder Books in Bishop for hosting a very successful book release/signing event!

front-cvr-26Out of the backcountry for another resupply, this time via Mammoth Pass.  Met a thru hiker up near Mammoth Pass, map out, scratching his head; southbound he took a left at Upper Crater Meadow… oops! Wonderful weather for hiking, not so good for shooting.  Going against the grain south to north this year, meeting many friendly people along the way.  The wildflowers are beginning to wane, but the backcountry is still surprisingly green.  We missed a big party at VVR the other night, lots of slow movers up Bear Ridge switchbacks the next day.
