After a 15 hour day that included me bashing my kneecap into a rock, this was the view that I saw looking out of my tent.⁣
⁣
Once again I didn’t bring a tripod, so I stacked some rocks for this.⁣
⁣
Taken with my Fuji X-T2 and XF 16mm f/1.4 lens. 20 seconds at ISO 1600 and f/1.4. Focusing at night can be tricky, as lenses will focus past infinity(whatever the fuck that means). So I put it on manual focus, went past infinity, and then slowly rolled the focus ring back until I saw the distance indicator tick back just slightly. They’ve done studies: 80% of the time, that works every time.⁣

We were above the smoke. So we’ve got that going for us, which is nice...⁣

Summit shenanigans.⁣

I was really looking forward to seeing across to Death Valley from 14,505’, but couldn’t due to all the smoke...⁣

So we were supposed to do the Whitney Mountaineer’s Route this past weekend, but my friend got the wrong permit. The snob in me always maintained that I had absolutely zero interest in ever hiking the (boring) Whitney trail.⁣
⁣
Turned out to be an awesome trip! I’m really glad we didn’t bail. Good company always helps. And Victor brought Johnny Walker Blue Label...⁣

This is my dad and me at Mendenhall Glacier after backpacking the Chilkoot Trail. 1994 maybe?

Think back to your childhood. Have you ever read a book that shook your worldview to the point where you felt like a different person?⁣
⁣
For me it was after reading To a God Unknown by John Steinbeck. A man believes his late father’s spirit is living in a tree, and he finds a higher power in a moss covered rock next to a stream.⁣
⁣
What it meant to me was the importance of forming your own beliefs, no matter how radical. And to have the conviction to stand by those beliefs no matter how difficult the current situation.⁣

As long as you pretend to be one of them, you won’t get eaten. Same applies to zombies.

Headed back to the mountains today. And “going to the mountains is going home”.
