My Brother Mike Screams Like a Little Girl...

as he jumps from about 30 feet or so into one of the Rae Lakes. My cousin and I had already jumped and Mike was trying to wuss out. He hates cold water. We used peer pressure and lies, assuring him the water was tepid. He shrieked on the way down, then yelped like a wounded dog, and swore like an HBO episode when he hit the cold water--making such a scene that it attracted a backcountry ranger who thought she had a Boy Scout troupe on her hands. Rae Lakes, Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP, Sierra Nevada, California, USA. September 1986.

Nice Cliff

Cherry Lake just outside of the Northern Yosemite Boundry has some very nice cliffs as well. A lot of fun! NICE PHOTO

sworn like a sailor just watching this jump, let alone doing the jump myself.

After a long hike, and with such beautiful weather, you would have jumped too.
