    Post Your Hiking Photos - Any Format

    Post the snaps you made while out hiking - any size forms is at will do. This snap was taken in Patagonia's Torre del Paine National Park while hiking to the Grey Glacier:

    Terminal Moraine, Blue Lake Cirque
    Gelatin-silver photograph on Ultrafine Silver Eagle VC FB photographic paper, image size 16.5cm X 21.4cm, from a Kodak Tmax 100 negative exposed in a Mamiya RB67 single lens reflex camera fitted with a 360mm f6.3 lens The larger rocks in this boulder field are the size of a double-decker bus. Glacial ice moved them easily. Walking through this area is not so easy.

    These are some previously posted images taken while backpacking.
    1) My shadow and Western Juniper on Shell Mountain on my 60th birthday (Rolleicord, platinum/palladium print)
    2) Looking up Redwood Creek (5x7, negative scan and inversed in PhotoShop)
    3) Mistaking the Map for the Territory, from on top of Sentinel Dome (4x5, 16x20 Silver Gelatin Print). One can backpack here when Glacier Point Road is closed.

    And some general photos of me hiking and/or backpacking:
    1) Many years ago -- in my lederhosen in the North Cascades...Glacier Peak in the back. Pre-photo days...wish I still had those monster legs!
    2) Day-hiking with my boys and the 8x10 above Yosemite Valley (to an unnamed waterfall)
    3) Day hike up Fern Canyon with the Rolleicord, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park
    4) Recent backpack trip up Redwood Creek (took my 4x5)...me feeding the fire in the rain.

    Me on top of Mather Pass - camera pointed south:



    About an hour before this was taken, I fell off the snow-covered north side and slid down about 100 meters before self-arresting in the soft afternoon snow.

    Wow, that's quite a fall!!!

    I went hiking today in the north GA mountains, on part of the Appalachian Trail. Specifically, the Woody Gap trail to "Preachers Rock." On the way I found this nice scene:

    Thanks Corran. That happened a few years back and after a little reflection it was more like 50 feet - 100' at tops. I had fallen downhill head first on my back with all my gear on which, back in those days, was upwards of 50 lbs, and without thinking about it flipped over and got my head pointed uphill and self-arrested digging the toes of the boots and fingers into the soft snow. I would have went down about 100 meters or so to where the slope leveled off if it was early morning when the snow would have been frozen, but even then I would have been unhurt as there were no protruding objects along the path. It sure sent the adrenlin through the roof and my heart was pounding away as I made it back to where I was.

    Here's a late afternoon/early evening view from my campsite north of Muir Pass in Evolution Basin, Kings Canyon NP:

    Very nice, Bryan!
    Thomas -- love that area...especially Dusy Basin. What a place for thunderstorms...the thunder rolls around that basin and shakes your insides! The last time I was there must have been 1973, maybe '74.

    Probably 90% of my photographs are taken while hiking (further than 1/2 mile from the road, or hiking around for more than an hour) with the exception of the 11x14 camera.

    Interesting area Chester. I haven't done much hiking out of TH on the western side but the hike out to Pear Lake looks interesting. I'm going to put that on my list.

    Vaughn: I've been to Dusy Basin many times - usually continuing over to the TH out or down to LeConte Canyon on the way in. But a couple of times I got a late start out of Bishop and camped in Dusy. Here is an image shot out of the door of my tent at sundown:



    It's a little blury due to the shutter speed - probably 1/8 second or even less - and in those days I never used a tripod or a cable release. Pentax K1000.
