Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Keep thinking cool thoughts
That's a very satisfying picture. I've spent a good amount of time hiking/camping above 10,000. The sky so clean something miles distant looks just a few feet away, so deep blue it's breathless, capped by a more brilliant sun.In the 1980s I was part of field research with USGS at Mammoth Mountain. In the winter of '83 a Forestry Ranger had died in his sleep when he entered into a snow bound cabin. The outgassing of the magma rising up to .8 km below the surface got him. Because of the snow, the gasses were trapped in the cabin.
Spent 4 days on the PCT near Mammoth in ‘87. Nights so clear the stars seemed to press down on us. Paradise!
