Ok, not really a report but maybe some fun..

Hiked up to Tuolumne Meadows last weekend...

Merry Christmas everyone



How about supplying a caption.

Reply with a caption.

Feel free to take aim.

If want incentive... the best one could receive a set of 5 "Stolen from Yosemite Chick-on" little biners.
(you can use that info to come up with a caption)

Have fun (at my expense if want)

And enjoy your holidays with friends and family or just people you tolerate

Thanks for most everything

Sometimes you get more than you want

(o.. I think those are possible captions)

Sometimes ...

I'll stop.

O... Tenaya Lake was NOT frozen over
100% snow with Upper and Lower Cathedral Lake frozen over
from TM to the down on the JMT after Sunrise HSC

Maybe post a pix or two later



Chick-on is looking at you!

Don't think I can beat JRinGeorgia's caption, but....

My kingdom for a pair of pants

or

Dang! Should have worn my tighty-whities to match the snow.

or

I thought I was in Green Bay for a Packers game. Where are all the other fans?? Oh wait....the season's over.

Oooh some goods ones so far!

On the Christmas Song theme:

"Ding Dong Merrily on High" (really never heard of it but Wikipedia says its a Christmas Carol)

"Jingle B*lls" (Can't take credit for that but have to share)

And if it was "The Night before Christmas" then I would go with....

"The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
Gave a luster of mid-day to objects below
When what to my wondering eyes did appear
But a miniature ___________"

I think the race is for second place now....my two cents:

'Founding member of the High Sierra Polar Bear Club'

'Sun's out buns out'

'Taking winter UL backpacking to the ultimate extreme'

Avid Yosemite backpacker has buns of steel, but the cold temps have taken their toll as his little chicken isn't visible.

Just trying to provide a little levity here.

It's been quite ... constricting... smiling smiley

Had to let my hair down.

Anyway, obviously people rolling their eyes.

Have a good one

(as in 2018... and Christmas)

Been watching "The Crown"

and ... to that end

GOD SAVE US ALL!

Went back with two other nuts:

Unfortunately the biggest nut is still recovering.

We all missed that nut.

Happy New Year
