I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

2006October

***October 2, 3006
– Second day of leaf trip. Spent morning and early afternoon in Bishop Creek drainage. Left around 3:00, but it was raining as I drove north.

***October 7, 2006
– Drove to Yosemite early to find Tioga Pass Road temporarily closed due to light snow. The road soon opened and I drove on up. After TPR breakfast, Owen and I drove to Saddlebag Lake, waited out a small snow shower, and backpacked around the left side of the lake to Cascade Lake. Cold!

***October 8, 2006
– Got up late due to the very cold and frosty morning. Packed after sun began to hit camp. Continued on loop through 20 Lakes Basin, eventually returning via the other side of Saddlebag Lake. Last Mono Melt of the season for late lunch at TPR, then time for some photos in Lee Vining Canyon, up the Virginia Lakes Road, around Conway Summit, and other places before heading home.

***October 14, 2006
– English Camp via Deep Gulch.

***October 22, 2006
– One-day trip to Yosemite in beautiful weather to photograph spectacular fall foliage. Hiking included parts of the upper end of the Valley and the Mist and Nevada Fall loop around Vernal Fall.

***October 28, 2006
– Up for an early (but not quite early enough) start at Mission Peak. On the trail at about 6:40 a.m. for climb to the ridge south of the summit just after dawn.
