The joy of wilderness

A hiker enjoys the invigoration of a trail with commanding views of the Minarets and Shadow Lake. See it large on black if you have a moment by clicking the photo.


I took this of a fellow hiker on a 1989 trip to Thousand Island Lake and on to Tuolomne Meadows. I think it works as an advertisement for backpacking; do you? This is from the Pacific Crest Trail, high above the Middle San Joaquin River canyon.
