I should add that the High Sierra Camp in Tuolumne Meadows is very nice.

Not sure. You'd have to ask Mike.

O wait... he didn't stay at the TM HSC.
I think he might have stayed at the OTHER 5.

Valentine Goat, due to the heart markings:

(Sorry but if you want to talk about goats I totally got you beat, I'm a former goat farmer)

That's my mom holding the goat, BTW

Last time I was at Royal Gorge (around 1987), the incline ride was closed. But the cable cars were fine. Twenty people in the car, suddenly it stopped mid-gorge, car swinging back and forth while the operator pretended something was wrong.

I've had a fear of cables ever since.

You know, I have been surprised how unsettling it is to ride a chairlift at a ski resort down the mountain. It is the same trip, but when you can see the dropoff in elevation, very scary.

Yeah, it did suck, but we did get to see 2 people clipping in. Guy #1 took longer because he doubled up. The second guy was faster, and it didn't look too bad. I'll admit when I did HD, I did use a sling/quickdraw setup around my waist just in case, but I never felt I had to use it.

At the end of the video it looked like the guy was just comming to terms with the difficulty of going down facing forward but had not quite yet figured out what his problem was.
