Frozen Lake & Cliffs, Kaweah Gap, Sierra Nevada, California, 1932 © Ansel Adams

A couple of months ago I went to Sequoia National Park. Our itinerary was grueling and didn’t help when we took the wrong mountain pass on the penultimate adding 30 miles to our trip. Twice (in and out) we went over Kaweah Gap.

I saw the Ansel Adams image above somewhere else recently but it was without a caption. It looked a lot lie Kaweah Gap but then again a lot of Sierra Nevada lakes look rather spectacular. Anyway, I was glad Doug Stockdale offered a caption and its location.

Whichever way the Ansel Adams/Uncle Earl saga plays out (they’re having a joint show now!) I  just wanted to say it is not easy to lug any weight, including heavy camera equipment up to 12,000 feet. They are both as fit as pack horses.
