Backpacking with Buddy

Back in the day, like when we used to ride motorcycles, we occasionally backpacked. Here are a couple of just-scanned photos from a 1996 backpacking trip to the Trinity Alps. The Trinity Alps have the perfect nature trifecta of trees, water and stone. As eye pleasing as Yosemite but with fewer visitors. Buddy the dog accompanied us, he even carried some of his own food.

It was 1999 when we headed out yet again for Death Valley via motorcycle. (By car? that's easy.) It was a more successful trip than the previous motorcycle trip.

I remember the night in Panamint Springs for the good food, the patio where you could watch the hot day draw to a close, and the worn-out motel room.

Beatty's trailer hotel      

Not a high point, Beatty. Not much scenery and every building in town is a trailer, even the hotel.

One of the many nice things about digital photos is the extra information in the file, such as the camera's settings and the date taken. Today's photos are all scans so all that info is lacking. So here is a question: were these photos all taken on the same trip to Death Valley? If not, why not?

I'm scratching my head to put a date on these scanned photos but I think it's 2001. We met at Yosemite and hiked and hiked until we passed the granite staircase and were at the foot of the cables. Most of us stopped at the cables while a couple were brave (not me) and went all the way to the top.

A few more of the hikers, the rock, and a waterfall from an almost-two-decades-ago trip to Yosemite.

Another old photo from Yosemite, but this time we hiked near Tioga pass as opposed to Half Dome, which is of course the big rock in the background.

It was a gloomy-looking day back in the early aughts when we hiked to the top of Marin's Mount Tamalpais. At the top, shown here, is an abandoned fire lookout encircled by a chain fence.

Enough of comets and back to my favorite old film photos. This is from an early-aughts hike in the Marin headlands.

One of countless times we (the hiking group) hiked the east bay hills.
