After hiking 4 days without seeing a soul (except some
sour fishermen, who refused to say hi) A ranger on
horsepack came by. I started talking to him, just
needing to hear another human voice after leaving
Tuolome Meadows. He told me of a couple folks about an
"Do you want to see my permit?" I asked. He sat there,
"Its even got the Whitney stamp on it, and everything.
No one has ever asked to see my permit before" I
babbled on as I dug it from my scruffy pocket papers.
Finally, he agreed, and took it. "That other couple
was from Georgia also,"he said, and handed it back.
Then, we talked a bit more, agreeing it looked like
snow, and a couple inches could be on the ground by
morning, June 27th.
Nice guy. Sure enjoyed the chat.
A taste of the wilderness is better than a platter of civilization. To walk in the wilderness is freedom--
