    @ 6:45 that pass I believe has a rather dark story, which I don't remember because it's been a few years since I saw it on cable, but that won't stop me. One or more peeps got lost in a white out and froze to death there -- something like that. I remember seeing this pass on the program from about the same spot, but I don't remember the program or what happened exactly.

    They get a lot of adventue traffic, eh? You can tell because everything is well maintained and new-ish, and of course, you eventually see a lot of peeps too.

    Yeah, Patagonia is a hiking and camping mecca. Lots of granola munchers. This guy is a travel writer? Approximately professional or at least semi-professional hiker.

    Beautiful thread. Thanks.

    Nice subject JAP.

    In my prime, I hiked the Long Trail (so I also did the 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail where they coexist) 272 miles up Vermont from the Mass. border to Canada. My knees don't let me hike like that anymore, but there are so many day hikes I guess it really doesn't matter. I also went to a summer tripping (that's hiking trips for you hippies) camp. The younger groups would do three or four day stretches, including trail and shelter maintenance, while the older groups would do much larger and longer chunks, and actually have built shelters humping in the materials for that and trail maintenance. What a camp!

    Screw that. I spent a career hiking hills and toting a heavy ruck. Iíll drive, park and walk maybe as far as a half mile.

    First vid is of this amazing man Joe Hendricks hiking Mt Ellinor. If you like his style, he has tons more vids on his channel. Here is a link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbs...zqyIMxomASYn-A


    The power and beauty of nature helps with many things including perspective.

    Friends of mine from Kansas came to Washington for a visit. They wanted to go see some mountains up close. We took them up to the Olympics and took in hurricane ridge. It was a nice clear day and the view was awesome.


    I thought that I'd take them into the Olympic national rain forest to check it out. As we were driving into a heavily wooded area, I noticed that they were kind of cowering in my car. I asked them if there was something wrong. They said that the trees were so huge that they were freaking them out. They asked if I would turn around and let them view the forest from a distance.


    My friend's wife said that she doesn't know how people can live in such an environment.

    This is a wonderful documentary. This guy and his son hike the Inca trail to Machu Pichu. This is the best documentary I have ever watched on Machu Pichu. I love this.

    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.
