A couple of pics from last weekend

The only quiet time, during my visit on Sunday, was a hike up little Gaylor Peak. Otherwise, it was quite busy on 120...the word was out that the pass was open. It was hard to avoid voices and car noise along the corridor.

I'm not given the choice to "paste" on the photo...only on the address. (?)

Sorry to make this a tutorial. Maybe it will help someone else.


I found the address in the properties OK. Do I have to physically type in the address here? (Tried a few things and no worky.)

You will need to enter the entire URL. You can just select it on the properties view and then copy it. I assume you are using internet explorer, but if you use chrome or firefox you can right click a photo and select 'Copy Image URL' or 'Copy Image Location' respectively without having look at the properties and having to manually select the url.

Once you have the URL copied you can paste it into a message. You can insert it between the [ img][ /img] (no spaces) tags as chickon suggested or click on the picture button (see at: ) in the message editor options, and then just paste it into the pop-up message that comes up.

Hope that helps.

OK...I am not offered the option to copy when right clicking on the URL. Only the option to select.

Yes I am using WIE8.

So for IE, right click the photo.

On the menu that appears, select properties.

A new window should pop up.

In that new window should be a listing for Address or URL. Select (highlight) the entire address, it maybe two or more lines and you may have to scroll down by holding down the left mouse button and moving it below the address field (at least I did). It should end in something like .jpg. Copy the address (ctrl-c or right-click the highlighted text and select copy).

Now you should have the full address in your clipboard and now you can paste it into a message.

Or just install something that doesn't install viruses for you.

No spaces: [img] [/img]

Note: you can escape the tags by putting a backslash in front of the first one.

Holy cow...like pulling teeth, eh? I dinked around yesterday, determined to get this. I even switched to Chrome, but since it wasn't my default browser, just loading page to page was horribly slow. I gave up. So back today, read chick-on's post...it was that last right clicky that I was missing! THANK YOU!!!


By the way...this is the Granite Lakes and Upper Gaylor Lake from Gaylor Peak 18 Dec 2011 smiling smiley



Edit: But after initial rejoicing, I realize that I won't be able to still just chime in with my S#!+ load of pictures...only ones from faceybook...

Edit # 2: I wonder why this pic is bigger than the others (?)

Gaylor is EZ but it was howling icy cold wind, just on top, this day. My video is probably noisy. A lovely walk is the to peak, down to the middle Gaylor lake, up to upper, then the Great Sierra Mine, across to the upper Granite Lake, stroll down to lower Granite then cut back across to middle Gaylor and back over the ridge. Nice view of Mount Dana from lower Granite.

I have pictures on webshots but I haven't contributed there for years. They are scanned photos (from film.) And my trolls are there. And I may have put up an address from Backpacker.com when I posted a pic there. Otherwise, I don't have pics anywhere except on my computer. A lot. (I have slow dialup so loading pics to another site is slow, sometimes frustratingly so. I have other things to do while on the computer, like read trip reports and view other people's pics. smiling smiley)

If I may share a little historical perspective, Gaylor lakes were named for early ranger Andrew "Jack" Gaylor, who died at Merced Lake in April, 1921. His descendants include at least one Wyoming Sheriff and numerous others around Fremont County, Wyoming. The following excerpt is from a website on his life:

Jack Gaylor never returned home to Wyoming after the war and his grown children, who remained in Wyoming, and other relatives in Oklahoma never knew what became of him. His daughter Nora McKinney inquired with the War Department and Red Cross to learn his fate, to no avail. Family tradition also suggests that his son Walter traveled to California after the war to try and locate his father, with no success. They all believed he probably perished during the war or succumbed to some injury or disease in San Francisco after returning from Cuba. He became a "family mystery" and no one knows for sure why he never returned home. They never knew that he later became Asst Chief Park Ranger in Yosemite National Park. He died of a heart attack sitting before his campfire while on a high mountain patrol at the park in 1921, many years after the war, and was buried in the Knights of Pythias section of the Merced, CA cemetery.

Great photos. I am so impressed you're still able to hike in Yosemite at this time of year. I've never seen Tioga pass open so late in recent memory. Fantastic!

Thanks Ulysses61...have one of Tenaya Lake I'll have to post.

I shouldn't do this here, but here's one from webshots while I'm trying out my newfound edumacation...








Ha, it's leetle itty bitty...shoulda previewed, but hit the wrong button. I knows what I did wrong though...I clicked on the thumbnail, not the full sized pic. (But it appears that the full sized pic is a red X box and won't show up, at least in the preview...oh, well, enough dinking today)

Tenaya Lake 18 Dec 2011 The ice was cracking and I was shivering (left my windbreaker and hat in the Subaru...) Still one couple walking on the ice nearby, then a family out with a sled on the east end.

Chilly looking landscapes Cheryl. Alot of little Sierra rodents and critters have already died of cold this winter probably like what happened in droughty 1989 when we had almost no precip until January, Without the covering layer of insulating snow, ground temperatures gradually drop much lower day by day, the freezing down deeper and deeper. Down to Mr & Mrs Munks inner chamber.

Likewise shallow lakes where winds have blown off the insulating surface layer of snow will freeze down deeper and deeper. Thus a bad time for winter kill of marginal shallow trout lakes.

And my new skis have been laying on my kitchen floor now for weeks, side my side, boots locked down in the new bindings, abandoned by nature.

Interesting, I never considered that a base layer of snow would actually insulate the ground underneath it. It seems counter-intuitive to me that snow can act as an insulator. Good stuff.

Sort of like an igloo or a snow cave.
