  1. Thank you for the photos and information concerning the fire. I don’t know you or your family, but I can still be thankful that you have all recovered from COVID.

    • I appreciate your words a great deal. I am really thankful we all recovered as well. It wasn’t too bad for my family but my parents had a hard road.

  2. GOD BLESS YOU. I grew up in the woods near Castle Craigs, and love to read your reports and see your beautiful pictures of a place special to GOD. Glad you and your family are well.

  3. Sorry to hear about your illnesses, and I’m glad you all have recovered. Had any of you been vaccinated? (No judgment implied, just curious.)

    • Sorry for the long wait in response. I appreciate the good word on our recovery! Regarding vaccinations, none of us had been. The reasons varied between my parents and my wife and I, but in the end its moot; we all got it. The shocking thing is how many people who have been vaccinated are still getting it.

  4. Oh…you’re coming to Yosemite! Can’t wait to see your posts. Wow, glad you all recovered from covid (imagine that!—sorry for the sarcasm, it’s coming from a gal who wants to remain unvaxxed). Spectacular fire photos. Truly, I’m glad you are all well.

    • No need to apologize for sarcasm! We tend to have the same attitude regarding the vaccines. The real challenge was from my dealing with my folks at the same time! Thank you for your concern too!

      We had a really good time in Yosemite, though the Valley was brutally hot. We picked the hottest day in the forecast and headed up to the 20 Lakes Basin then to enjoy some cooler temps. The rest of the time we just hung out near the water in the Valley. Honestly, with our freshly recovered covid-lungs we were happy to keep it mellow this year, with no major hikes or anything.

      I hope the summer in Yosemite has treated you well!

  5. Gosh Bubba, that’s a lot to deal with. I am so glad everyone recovered so we’ll, just amazing! Take care, Linda

    • Hi Linda! It’s good to hear from you. I hope you guys are doing well! For us, this has certainly been the hardest, wierdest summer but it has still been good. I hope I run into you at some point in the near future…maybe somewhere on the PCT!
