But how many of you have had dreams about mountaineering that ended up being true?
Case in point - Kearsarge Pass. I had a vivid dream about Kearsage Pass (incorrect spelling intentional) and the cirque.
Understand I've never been to Kearsarge. I have no idea the topography, geography, or anything.
At any rate, my goal was to complete a long-distance run around a lake bounded by the Kearsage, whatever that meant. There was a large lake, not unlike Tahoe, in the center of the picture and four peaks I needed to traverse on the east side of the lake. I started at a trailhouse lodge and headed up the west side of the lake following a yellow trail line that resembled the route lines on a metro train map. Follow the yellow brick road, I guess. Bounding back down the east side the silhouettes of the peaks were steep and challenging.
I've looked at a guidebook since then, and there's an uncanny similarity to the images in my dream. A cirque around a water formation, Kearsarge Lakes. The peaks to traverse, Kearsarge Peaks (although maybe not all 10/11 of them).
What are your dreams come true? Wacky subject, I know.

And then out west, Wyoming. I think I know why, but it's hard to quantify.

Definitely save it for the snow. In the summer, it's a cluster-f#@!, especially at the lakes.
