This photo of the frosted tree are awesome. Some one told me that California doesn't have snow or frost and it would be a great place to live. I take it they have not been there as I was once back in 1979 and it was nice and hot there just like I love it.
Bello paisaje, me gusta mucho, saludos cordiales desde Asturias
I am, a grandson, a nephew, and a cousin. The ferry is still up and running, I don't get up there nearly as much as I'd like to though.
Thanks for providing all of these lovely pics! I totally enjoy your site!
We have two table mtns near Fresno. One might think that they were closely related but the geologists say that Big Table mtn is much younger, if I recall correctly (which at my age is unlikely). The numbers 6 million for the basalt capped Big Table mtn comes to mind. Little table top (by hwy 41 and 145) is a sandstone capped 60 million year old formation. For a real treat hike around up on Big Table top in the spring after our rains (if such exist). There are the most intriguing vernal pools up there!
But if you are an aviator with an engine-out, please do not even consider landing up there! It looks smooth from a distance but the big chunky rocks will tear you apart.
I saw a wolverine up close in (I think) Desolation wilderness, about 35 years ago. I read about a scientist researching the wolverine population. I am an experienced wild life observer but since I don't have a doctorate my story doesn't count.
That was a real bitch to get down that mountain to the trail
Yes! You're posting more photos. Keep it up.
In 1977 at age 16 me and my friends skated this place. It was awesome. In 2001 I skated it with my 15 year old son. What a blast. Thank God for the Big Creek Project and all it has meant to me and my family for over 50 years.
