1994
Pat and Terry take a long hike, in late August, from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite. It took them 11 days and they hike over a 170 miles. They lost 15 lbs each and wanted to kill each other several time throughout the hike. When it was all over they both had only fond memories of the event and brag about it all the time. Terry ran into some past students in Kennedy Meadows and Pat ran into several past students from his backpacking classes who were doing maintenance repairs along the trail. We had dinner one night with Kathy and Karen. A couple of rangers who wore guns that night. I guess they didn't trust two really dirty old men; and we were really dirty by then. There are a lot of good stories from this trip and if Terry and Pat can remember them, they'd love to tell them to you. Just Ask! We had a book by Tommas Winnett and we tried to take pictures just like the ones that were in the book. We also included topo maps to give an idea of where we were....

Our favorite place....Benson Lake....the Riviera of the Sierra's
