Smelling like a campfire in the San Fran Museum of Modern Art

After a few days of achilles recovery in Lone Pine, CA. I climbed what was supposed to be a relatively short scramble up Lone Pine Peak on Tuesday (not to mention Lewis looking at my screachy brakes on Monday, ask about that one later). This was a nice hike of a fews hours to a few alpine lakes, called the Meysan Lakes, and then a rather arduous challenge of my route finding and scrambling abilities. The views were awesome, especially of the great white whale (aka Whitney).

After what ended up being a 10-11 hour day, I figured a couple of days off would be nice. I came to the Bay area, where I'm in a nice campsite not far from Larkspur, where I took the ferry across the bay(s) into the city to visit the SFMOMA.

They have a rather extisive collection of Paul Klee ink drawings (my coworkers will know Klee by the poster -the crazy looking guy- in the art cube. My internet friendly acquainances will know this same work as my MSN avatar.

I pick up Wade from the airport tomorrow and we will be returning to the Sierra where we will hopefully be attempting Whitney (permits are more difficult to get than I had expected, but it looks hopefull that there will be an opening due to someone else's cancellation).

I am running out of internet time here at this cafe, so please forgive the misspellings and general lack of grace.

Having sensory overload here in CA...mountains, bays, art, etc...

Stay tuned!

You cried 30 minutes just seeing it. Imagine having to leave it as your home! Sensory overload. I love it. Home Sweet Home.
Know you and Wade will have a good time.
