    Wish I had known you were coming down to the stomping grounds. We know the roads around Granit and 23S16 like the back of our hands. Great write up, pictures and tour. I just might have to go on one of those one of these days.

    Saw this post yesterday, and finally could sit down to check it out.
    Good writeup Tim, and excellent pictures as always.

    Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    I think that pretty well sums it up, Tim. Not sure why but this particular tour and pics touched me deeply... maybe the people that were on it, maybe the pictures, or maybe the introspection... but it did indeed go deep to the soul on this end. Well done!!

    Tim great report and as always the pics tell so much more than the words. In fact it is your photographic eye that probably made many of us stop at this site it did me eh!....Rick

    Absolutely Beautiful! I need to get back to Yosemite before the weather turns.

    Steve, Bob, Michelle, Paul, Kim, Sean, Haroldo & Billie- what a phenomenal ride. Much thanks.

    WOW!, at least you got a full body shot onto the page dad Althought it is sad looking, the worst part is I can see my body (buff that it is) in yours. Basically I am screwed. I may as well let time do it's job and not even work out any more

    Although I already feel old and will retire in sub 10 years.
    P.S> let me know of any good land for sale... like 5-20 acres!

    It's funny in a way but I see Moro Rock and the rest of the high Sierra every morning on the way to work...and generally take the view for granted. It's all covered in snow now but will be accessable soon. I can only imagine what someone from the mid-west must think, seeing these pictures.

    Picture it this way, standing at 6500 feet and being able to look straight down in almost a 360 degree circle?

    Sound intriquing? It was for our Pashnites, especially the Canadians.
