starting up tioga
self-portrait, seemed worthwhile in a place like this
reached sawmill camp, dropped the bike and started out on foot to summit mt conness
you can see the couloir behind my right hand, but climbing up there by myself without an ice axe seemed unreasonable (not to mention chacos)
apparently that wasn't enough to be tired, so I rode into tuolumne to get some firewood: those photos will come later.
one of my favorite cosmos photos yet:
the moon rose just as I took this photo--lighting the mountain but not obscuring the milky way.
