Mountain Memories

I’ve lived in snowy mountainous areas, and hiked into the wild areas of Yosemite. But it’s been a long time. So seeing places like this gets me wondering who’s been there lately.

How many people had made the arduous climb to this smooth stone between the glacier’s retreat and the time of John Muir? How many since? Any this year yet? Are there any established trails? This zoom pic from high and far away makes the haze look far worse than it did in person, but I do hope to fly there some day when the air is crystal clear.

So many of our most magnificent parks suffer from smog, yet still offer such a healing place to Be. Far outside the park are places like this frozen meadow.

When the distant musical hum of our engine had passed, what sounds wafted across this theater among the trees? Are those human footprints I see that crunched in the snow fallen only a couple of days before, so high and far from the beaten track in the healing embrace of nature?
