Heading up the headwall

Heading up the headwall

My friend Jerry and I elected to go to the left up the rocky spine rather than tackle the headwall straight on. It might surprise people to know that this is on the way out of Shields Lake and that is Prusik Pass up there. In early season, there is still alot of snow up there. June 1974

Love the historic pics!

Now, let me think...June 1974...I was about 4 months old, I don't think I was doing much in the mountains at that time. Eating, crying, fillng a diaper, etc, that's about it.

Thanks for sharing this "back in the day" pic!

Re: Love the historic pics!

Thanks Sarah, I appreciate your comments and that you like these older pics. I was thirty three when this pic was taken and I thought anybody above 50 was really old. Now I wish I was 50, that actually seems young. Merry Christmas.

Don't have to think very

hard to know where I was in June 1974 ...

I was hiking in the Stansbury Mountains west
of Grantsville, UT. My friends were listening
to CCR on cassette tape.

I believe "More Creedance Gold" had just been
released the previous year. Thanks, Dean!

Re: Don't have to think very

I still love Creedance. One of the best groups ever. Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Lodi, Who'll stop the rain, etc and then later on,
John Fogerty's Centerfield, Rock n Roll girls, I can't help myself. Good good stuff. Thank you Larry, that was a good era for songs but maybe not for gear.

Sounds groovy, Dean!

Only opinion, but I always thought food was
the closest thing to a man's heart, and then
music comes in second ...

Re: Don't have to think very

Food is important, that is so true but then, music, what would we do without music. My second favorite group is the Eagles.
Here's my top three:
1. Creedance
2. The Eagles
3. Buddy Holly

"And the seasons they go 'round and 'round, And the painted ponies go up and down. We're all captive on a carousel of time.

We can't return, we can only look
Behind from where we came -

And go 'round & 'round & 'round in the
Circle Game."

(Joni Mitchell - 1970)
