For our 50th post, we’re going to look back to the past.
Here are some old slides we’ve scanned in the last year. We have thousands of scanned slides stored away, and we will start adding more to the website in the coming months, but here are some from a backpack trip Roma and some of the kids and I took from Lake Sabrina about 40 years ago.
These were all taken on my old Leica camera, with Kodachrome film.
Below is one of our kids on the way up.
Here we are looking east towards The White Mountains. The light-colored peak on the left is Boundary Peak. The shoulder of the peak is the highest point in Nevada, but the peak itself is in California. White Mountain peak is on the right.
Here is Roma enjoying the cool mountain air. The air is so clear up there, but I can say that the air is cleaner today than it was back then. The snow is whiter too.
Roma and I usually didn’t hike on trails. We just used the topographic map to get where we wanted to go. A lot of trails didn’t exist abck then. There was the Pacific Crest Trail and The John Muir Trail, but that’s not always where were wanted to be.
That’s a good marker. It no doubt helped us on our way.
This is Lake Sabrina from above. It looks prettier from here looking down than it is from there looking up.
This is the view of Paiute Crags, looking north.
Again, here are the Paiute Crags with Boundary Peak in the background.
We don’t have a positive identification of all of these spots. If you know where any of these were taken, let us know.
