Thank God I filtered some water before I got to this point
What is it that gives us the sense of High Adventure? For me I think it is the thrill of the unknown. What's around the next corner? How am I going to get home? How far is it? Where will I sleep tonight? Maybe thats why I enjoy hiking so much. This hike was one of the best I've been on in a long time and it was almost completely unplanned. That being said, I do have enough sense to have a map along with the other ten essentials as well as a little knowledge of the area I'm going into. I don't care to turn into another Chris McCandless, AKA Alexander Supertramp. OK so this set of pictures was supposed to be named Emigrant Wilderness Thru-Hike but upon hiking up the shoulder of Big Sam Mountain which is the highest point in the wilderness on trail, thunder and lightning started crashing down around me. Being well above tree line at 10500 feet and having my metal hiking poles sticking out of my pack like a lightning rod, I decided to utilize my emergency exit route and beat feet out of there. I was really bummed that I would not be seeing Emigrant Pass, High Emigrant Lake, Middle Emigrant Lake, Emigrant Meadow Lake and all the other lakes down the Crabtree Trail, but the continued lightning in the area reinforced that my decision to get out of the high country was the right one. I started my hike that day at Leavitt Lake after my father in-law so graciously drove me up there in the Jeep. Leaving the lake, I climbed the old abandoned Jeep road up to the top of the ridge and down to the PCT. Following the PCT for a while going south, I made my way to the juction of the PCT and the Emigrant Trail near Kennedy Canyon. Following the Emigrant Trail West towards Big Sam Mountain, I was about 500' below the top of Big Sam when the lightning started and I turned around. Having read reports of the area, including the excellent Emigrant Wilderness and Northwestern Yosemite book by Ben Schifrin, I knew there was a boot path down through Kennedy Canyon. The boot path took me as far as Kennedy Lake where I picked up the Kennedy Lake Trail. Once you get to Kennedy Lake the trail goes through some pretty muddy and swampy areas. There are also lots of cows in this area as it is utilized as a grazing area by local ranchers. Knowing this, it is a good idea to fill up on water before you hit the lake. After passing the lake you will come up on an old log cabin which belonged to an Andrew Thomas Kennedy. I wanted to get a better look at it but it looked as if someone was possibly using it for a base camp so I steered clear of it. After the cabin you will come to a fence that is used to keep the cattle in but I don't think it worked too well as I saw cattle on both sides of the gate. It was at this point of my hike that the thunder and lightning really started in earnest and I got hailed on pretty hard by marble sized hail (later I heard Yosemite was getting golf ball sized hail so I guess I was lucky). After about 4 miles past Kennedy Lake, the trail crosses Kennedy Creek and it becomes very pretty and rugged with smooth polished granite all around. I was in a unique position seeing this trail this way as the majority of people seeing this area for the first time see it coming up from Kennedy Meadows, I was seeing Kennedy Meadows for the first time by hiking down to it. Once you are in the canyon with all the polished granite, you have a choice of taking the Night Cap Stock Trail or the Relief Reservoir Trail down into Kennedy Meadows. I chose the Relief Trail. At the end of the trail you still have a mile or two to go on a dirt road before you get to the store and restaraunt. I believe I read somewhere that there used to be a lodge here but it burned down a couple of years ago. I did see a campground there. Having made plans to be picked up the next day at the Crabtree Trailhead, I used the pay phone to place calls to my father-in-law to come pick me up. I didn't know it at the time but he later told me that he had gone in to the lake earlier that day and forgot that he still had his cell phone in his pocket so calling him did me no good at all. Sitting on the porch of the store at Kennedy Meadows drinking a Gatorade, I watched a car pull up and drop a guy off with a pack. I immediately recognized the guy as a PCT thru-hiker as he fit the hiker trash model with what looked like a couple of months worth of beard growth. I asked him if he just came from Sonora Pass and if the guy he was riding with was going west on Hwy 108. He said he was so I ran down the steps and stuck out my thumb at the guy and he waved at me to come on in. After securing my pack in the back of his car, I learned that the thru-hiker was up on the Sierra Crest near Sonora Pass not too far away from where I was when the lightning started. The storm really came out of nowhere as it was sunny one minute and black clouds the next. He said the thru hiker (named Bill) threw down his pack and ran downhill to the cover of some trees when the storm hit. After the storFilters vs. skyglow (update- CORRECTED!)
And the winner is... Skyglow. From my back yard this evening: the highest dewpoint night of the year so far, so lots of skyglow lighting up the place. An ideal night to see how good various filters are at nuking the pestilence. These are exposures through three different filters (Hoya FL-Day, Hoya Intensifier, B+W 090 light red, plus no filter). All exposures are ISO200, 5 minutes, and aperture was adjusted to compensate for the filter factor: f/5.6 for no filter, f/2.8 for the red, and f/4 for the FL-D and intensifier. White balance was fixed to daylight for all four shots. Most of the skyglow here is high pressure sodium vapour street lamps, plus some incandescent from the nearby houses. The yellow-red cast is obvious in the (top) unfiltered exposure.
