I’m an outdoorsman. I spend quite a bit of my time enoying the wild places of this world. I’ve been camping since before I started eating solid foods or could even talk. I love the outdoors.

This weekend was my son Zac’s, now 15 weeks old as of Friday, first camping trip. We left early early Saturday morning and took him to the far side of the Sierra between Mono Lake and the Tioga Pass entrance to Yosemite and spent the night at 5,200′ Aspen Grove.

Aspen is aptly named, as it consists of a large grove of quaking aspen trees the High Sierra is famous for. Set along side Lee Vining Creek, one of the feeder sources for Mono Lake, and nestled under 14,000′ peaks, the campground is an ideal taking off place for trips to Yosemite, Tuolomne Meadows, Mono Lake, or as we often due, trips down to June Lake and Mammoth Lakes. This is a picture of our “big” tent on the edge of the big meadow at Aspen Grove.

More pictures will be following as soon as they are developed and scanned. I was up well before dawn and got some fabulous pictures of the surroundiing moutains peaks in black and white and a great pic of the beautiful brown trout I caught on my flyrod.
