Some Things I’ll Miss About California, Part 2

By Mark D. Roberts | Tuesday, October 2, 2007

Yesterday I wrote that I will miss the Pacific Ocean. That’s surely true. But my favorite part of California isn’t the coastline, but rather the High Sierra. I have loved hiking in these magnificent mountains, either by myself, or with my family. The photo below shows my daughter and me in front of Blue Lake near Bishop, California.

I took the following picture at sunrise, just outside of Bishop. The tallest peak is Mount Humphreys, which is 13,986 feet high.

One of the most well-known and beloved parts of the Sierra is Yosemite Valley. The photo below is of Half Dome, the glacier-carved granite dome at the eastern end of the valley.

Like I said, there are some things I’ll miss about California.

    Hey bub, northern Idaho looks EXACTLY like these pictures. Even the Sawtooths are tremendous here in Idaho. Think about it….

    Damon: Yes, indeed. I love Idaho. Spent time there two and three summers ago. Peace.

    I grew up in Burbank and spent much of my youth in the Angeles National Forest. I moved with my young family to NJ in 1996 and then to FL in 1999. I still miss my mountains. I hope you’ll be able to get to yours often in spite of your move. I cannot tell you how painful it is to this day to only get a hike in once every 5 years.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
