December 31, 2006It always feels good to get one's gallery to really take off!!! I've lost count of how many pics I have!!

December 31, 2006Keep it up john. I can't wait till I get out there in March. I hope that I can get into Kings Canyon and drive all the way to the lodge. it is the best drive that I an remember. that is #1 to do on my to do list.
see ya then
December 31, 2006Dave, what lodge are you talking about. Maybe while you are out here we can get a bunch togeather and make a run up the hill. How long will you be here. If you let me know, I WILL set up some sort of run to somewhere. Maybe a mystery run and picnic some place. Let me know the dates you will be here as soon as you can so I can get it set up. I know you will be driving back here with us to Tulare, but how long will you be staying. Can't wait to meet up again, but in Laughlin this time and see the dreamer.
December 31, 2006Dave,
Look very forward to meeting you in person. If Bruce could set it up you guys could count me in.
December 31, 2006Bruce I think I am talking abought past Ceder Grove where the road ends at the station an haft to come back. highway 80 I think, it curves thrue the floor next to the river, an you look strait up at the mountains.
I will be there till at least Wednesday the 14th or will leave friday the 16th.
It dependes on how tired dad gets,
December 31, 2006Well if you would like to see some airplanes I could show u some. But just hanging oout with u is cool with me
December 31, 2006Thanks John, the last time I was there bruce let me go on a run an dad still talks abought that. we had a good time. met a lot of nice peaple there. helepd us forget for a sec that my uncle was in ICU. an for that we will be indebted to all the cruisers an everybody that helped our stay there fun.
December 31, 2006Dave , why don't I go ahead and set something up for the 13th. That way if you go home the 14th instead of the 16th we'll have a get together. Let me know and I'll get the wheels in motion so we can show you some back home hospitality.
December 31, 2006sounds like a plan to me.
I fond the specks on kings Canyon
Hwy 180 between Yucca Point and Boyden Caveâ€”Drive carefully along this section of the road blasted out of the nearly sheer walls of Kings Canyon. Stop frequently to appreciate the grandeur of this water-carved canyon.
Boyden Caveâ€”Notice the layers of marble sandwiched between strips of volcanic rock. Appreciate the tremendous forces that tipped these layers to a nearly vertical orientation.
Grizzly Fallsâ€”A short trail leads to impressive falls and a cool, shady spot on a warm day. (Allow 5 extra minutes to the falls)
Don Cecil Viewâ€”Take this pretty .75-mile trail up to a beautiful view across the canyon to the Monarch Divide. (Allow 1 extra hour)
Hotel Creek Overlookâ€”Early morning is the best time to hike this 5-mile round trip trail to a nice view of Cedar Grove. (Allow 3-4 extra hours)
Canyon Viewâ€”Excellent view of the U-shaped Kings Canyon showing its glacial past.
Roaring River Fallsâ€”Feel the power of this waterfall rushing through a narrow granite chute reached through a short, paved, and relatively accessible trail. (Allow 15 extra minutes)
Zumwalt Meadowâ€”An easy 1.5 mile trail offers splendid views of high granite walls, a lush meadow, impressive talus, and the meandering Kings River. (Allow 1 extra hour)
Roads Endâ€”This pleasant area offers excellent views of high granite walls, access to river trails, and Muir Rock.
December 31, 2006"Drive carefully along this section of the road blasted out of the nearly sheer walls of Kings Canyon." My PT on a road like this??? I don't think so!! Let's try for a nice cruise somewhere not so dangerous. He, He. I'll get started on something here soon and we will be ready for it when we get back from Laughlin. Of course, you are wecome to make the treck up the hill, just leave the 13th open for our little get together.
