Some notes, I guess:

  • 10.3 miles for the pass hike, but then I added 2-3 miles to go see the last waterfall (and butterfly).
  • 3,400-foot elevation gain (I hiked from Sunrift Gorge to Siyeh Cutoff — if I’d done it the other way around, it would’ve only been 2,200 feet, but then the sun would’ve been in the wrong place).
  • They have interesting clouds here.
  • Gale-force winds at the pass (almost — I’m guessing ca. 30 mph); second hike of the trip so far that made me get my gloves out of the backpack (Lassen Peak was the first).
  • Despite singing the “Grizzly Bear Oh Won’t You Come Stand Maybe Fifty Yards from Me (But Then Don’t Come Any Closer)” song for most of the hike, did not see any grizzly bears.
  • Or black bears.

    Well if he would’ve kicked, he would’ve missed me — but not by much. 🙂

    This is a hike I’ll put on a list somewhere. Was 10.3 miles out and back or was there a shuttle back to your car or did you actually hike 20.6?
    Your best pictures, I think, from an eye-candy perspective. Even I liked the color gradation shots here. I still prefer volcanoes.
    30 mph is a gale? You SoCal folks have low standards, Ich denke.
    Do you take the flower shots just to prove that your camera can do mountains and micro-subjects?
    Don’t sing — bears avoid human voices. Try to find a black bear cub, then come between it and its mother, then punch the bear in the nose. (Don’t punch a grizzly, though!)
    The background makes your hat look like it has a huge feather. The shadows make the squirrel look like it has tail feathers.
    Could you change the arrangement of the days during your stay in the Smokies?

    Shuttle back to car. Definitely shuttle back to car. Although — I didn’t really do the shuttle back to car. Instead, I walked another three or four miles and closed the loop. Except then I came back to the road one stop too soon, so then I took a 1/4-mile shuttle ride back to car. Because I was bored of looking at ferns. I don’t know why I take flower shots. I just don’t know. Could probably rearrange some things — we should probably talk about that.
