I know everyone visiting my blog has been scratching his or her head and wondering, “When is Jenny going to get a scanner?” Well, it has finally happened. Don’t get your hopes up too much, though—I’ve never been much of a photographer, and many exciting and wonderful adventures went unrecorded. But I’ll be updating some of my old posts with a few pix!
This photo commemorates the fun and totally unnecessary bushwhack that Bob and I did up to Garfield, a mountain that has a perfectly good trail on it. Note the plastic boots, gaiters, and Hawaiian shorts. (By the way, you would hardly guess it from the photo, but the snow was really deep on the way up. We went up a tributary of the North Branch of the Gale River and hit the Garfield Ridge Trail around 4000′.)
