Hi Morgan,

great page! I would only like to have some links concerning information about the area, ths shuttle bus you are talking about, accomodation, lodging or camping as well as wheather conditions.

Regards, Rahel



2. Feb.: I just looked after your page. Unfortunately, you have not finished the update totally. I was so much looking forward to seeing it ;o).I changed my vote from 4 to 3 stars .... Please contact me if you have finished all updates. Then I will give you the 4 stars again ... ;o)



4. Febr.: Morgan, you are like me who tries to lead things kind of ad absurdum in order to give your supposed critics no occasion to say anything anymore .... ;o)). (Normally, this way works and I tried it with my pages in the same way you did it now. But in my case, unfortanetely, it did not work ....;o() If all SP-pages would be like this one, we could think about making a commercial CD-ROM of all stuff and pay Josh ...really!

Good suggestions...I will work on them. Unfortunately, the US National Park Service's website has been down for quite a while. Apparently some small court case between an Indian group and the US government led to nearly all governmental sites being shut down.



If you remember the discussion on the message board regarding making pages for "massifs" or "ranges" or "logistical centers", it makes sense that someone should set up a Yosemite National Park page. Then we could add some common information on shuttle buses, campgrounds, wilderness permits, etc., and just link to that page from mountain pages...



Thanks,

MOrgan

Rahel,



Sorry if it sounded like I took it personally. I guess I did take it a bit personally at first, but the more I thought about it, you had excellent, and very valid points, regardless of what anyone else says.



I imagine myself visiting Germany (I have been to the Bavarian Alps in 1992), wanting to climb some mountains. Even with a guidebook, the logistics can be imposing, especially if you do not speak the local language (I do not). Guidebooks tend to be spread too thin, with the authors feeling obliged to cover ALL the mountains. SP gives a very personal take on the logistics of getting to the mountain.



As someone who lives in California, it really requires very little planning to do a weekend trip. However, you, coming from Germany, might like to plan your trip months in advance. I think it is only fair that mountain maintainers at least think like a foreign visitor for a minute. Then the need for more serious attempts at providing information becomes undeniable.



Keep making your mountain pages the way you think they should be. I found the solution that works best for me, and I'm happy that the new arrangement is more satisfactory for prospective foreign visitors.



Keep your head up!

Morgan

Morgan,



thanks for your long and very good comment! No, I did not mean it personally, not at all! I'm very sorry if you felt in this way!



When I became active member of SP in December I looked mainly at Ulli's pages and thought: Well, this is a good standard. Then my pages were voted down, sometimes till 1 star. I began to think about the reason and added as much stuff as I could because I thought people were missing some stuff. It took some time before I recognized that somebody was only voting my pages down because of no reason. But then I had already put so much stuff on it because I thought this is simply necessary. The next step was that I became myself convinced that this stuff is useful .... so I began to look for it on other pages ... and was very frustrated when I saw that often many pages had much less infos but much more stars. Therefore I thought a 4 star page should at least have as much infos as my 3,5 star pages ....



Cheers, Rahel

Morgan,



Although I had thought of doing North Dome for a long time it was your page that finally inspired me to do it. It was a great and wonderful experience with, as you said, "mind-blowing" views. I'll never forget it. Nice page and topos!



My only comment is that perhaps you could think about adding a section on Indian Rock? I don't really think Indian Rock deserves it's own page but it is a fun place to visit on the way to North Dome - some easy scrambling. I have some photos I can dig up if you make this section :-)



<update>

Thanks for putting up the section on Indian Rock :-)

John,



Excellent point. Please post the photos. I myself have some memories of Indian Rock.



Imagine the scene: hiking through the snow in November the day before, up the Yosemite Falls Trail, with about 60 lbs, including two full bottles of red wine. Our map: one of those woefully coarse 1:63000 Wilderness Press plastic maps. We hiked out the following morning in very blustery conditions; could hardly keep the gear from blowing away as we hiked out. I just remember trying to find our way to Indian Rock by correlating the topography we were seeing with the contours on the map. We eventually got there after some stressing. At that point, the fun was really beginning. It was hard enough to find the trail; we were stumbling blindly from one cut log to another. Somehow we made it out before dark.



Ahh, the fun of "youth"!

Morgan,



The photos are up.



On your November trip, I'm surprised you didn't drink your wine to lighten your load and warm up in those "blustery conditions." Sounds like an adventure :-).

Don't worry, we drank the wine in camp. I'd like to say it was "worth it", but somehow most red wines lose something when they're chilled to 35° and the wind is blowing like crazy. Packing out the bottles wasn't exactly fun...

I paged through some of the Yosemite peaks, and I recognized I have to go there at some time in the next 2 to 3 years. Thanks for the inspirations!

Type of trek:



A full package camping trek: is one which is self sufficient. There are guides, cooks, sherpas and porters to take care of all the technical and logistical aspect of the trip. All food and camping equipment is provided. Porter carry everything, including your personal gear. All you have to do is walk with your camera, meet the local people, take in the breathtaking views, and eat three hearty meals a day ! You trust your diet to cooks who can bake cake on the hillside stove.We can camp at "wilderness" sites away from the main trails,a fact you will particularly appreciate especially when awakened by the kitchen hand armed with a steaming mug of tea- there’s nothing better than snuggling in your sleeping bag looking out at the first rays of sun of the peaks.

A full package Tea House Trek: can be done only on the popular trails, such as the Annapurna, Langtang, Helambu or the route to Everest. A guide and some porters take care of leading the tour and carrying the luggage and equipment respectively.As each day comes to an end, the guide will manage to provide you accommodation and food. This is most popular type of trek these days if you are doing trek on a popular trail. Since there are no needed of cook, Kitchen crew and many porter, this trek is cheaper then camping trek.

A fascinating and rewarding Himalayan trek.

4)Annapurna circuit trek: 12days -18days
Trekking in the Annapurna region provides dramatic contrasts between green terraced farmland of the Marshyangdi valley and the massive peaks of the western portion of the great Annapurna. These peaks include Mt. Manaslu, Buddha Himal, Annapurna II & IV Gangapurna and Tilicho. In spite of the great heights of the surrounding peaks and ice walls, the valley floor between provides comfortable camping spots and some of the best trekking in Nepal. Highlights include: the Thorong La (5416m), which must be crossed on the Annapurna Circuit trek, to reach the sacred site of Muktinath. This temple complex is a pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists and when seen from here the sunrise on Dhaulagiri is particularly striking. Descending from Muktinath, you will be rewarded with great views of the Mustang region and caves in the northern hillside used as shelters by Tibetan refugees after China took over Tibet. Descend through the beautiful river valley into the world's deepest river gorge, carved by the mighty Kali Gandaki River, as it slices between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. Relax in hot springs at Tatopani and ascend Poon Hill for sunrise or sunset and panoramic mountain views over the Annapurnas, including Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Ganagapurna, Annapurna III, Nilgiri, Machhapuchhare, Dhaulagiri & many more. The Annapurna treks end in Pokhara, an atmospheric town with a beautiful setting on the shores of the lake
