Rev's Mountaineering Photos Thread

I figure if Turm can have an art thread, I can have a mountain photography thread. Sure, it's not as cool as her thread because she's a mad genius whereas I am but a mere point and shoot guy with a hiking pole. However, I thought I might go ahead and share anyway, just to keep you up to speed on what I'm seeing when I'm away from my computer.

Thanks for sharing. I believe I passed through that area last month. Those are the mountains north of the I- 10?

They are, they are. I-10 Runs right through the San Gorgonio Pass, separating the Northern San Bernardino Mountains (Big Bear, etc.) from the Southern San Bernardino Mountains (Idyllwild, etc.).

They are my home.

Love this! Love that forest!
What kind of wildlife have you seen out there if any?
I always want to hike but psyche myself out by being afraid of being attacked by black bears and having my skull crushed and eaten alive.

Great pics, the scenery I experience is similar to some of those on my hikes except the wooded shots. Awesome pics of the boulders btw.

I don't like keeping my cell phone on me. Cellular waves and the extra weight on my jock not worth it. Trust me though.

Black bears aren't aggresive, however grizzly bears are very much so. Are they in your area of Canada?
The only time I've hiked in grizzly country we had a pistol in the group and everyone carried flares and bear mace while constantly making noise so we would surprise one. We never came across one.


I'm glad we don't got any left in California, the bear republic. They used to inhabite this area and are still on the CA flag.

They're everywhere here. Right outside my door.:)

Worst post I've ever read on the internet. I'm out.

lol. Go to Alaska and get mauled by a bear please. Thanks

SoK 04-16-2015 01:51 PM

You're a prime example of illogical fears that most people have. In a group of people, your chances of a bear attack are almost zero.

And having no respect for nature is detestable. What's next, are you afraid ISIS bombers will bomb you when visiting the city?

Some cool looking country! Got any gold in the area Rev? :D

The Rev 04-16-2015 04:47 PM

I don't think so, but there are no Indians anymore, so I'm guessing someone found some at some point.

Here are some from my hike yesterday. It was just a short jaunt (less than 5 miles round trip), but it was at a bit higher altitude, so it was more pines and less chaparral. I can't describe how wonderful it all smelled!

You make me wanna go hiking!!!
I wish we had mountains here!!

I need to get bear spray. Better yet they say hornet spray so it doesn't back spray and burn your own eyes out.

Last year I swear I came upon a bear den when I was snowshoeing in the spring.. It was a large deep black hole in the ground big enough for bears.. I stopped. Stared at it and backed away shit myself and tried to walk run fast but that doesn't work in snowshoes. Then shortly past I found a hunters "bear bait" set up..
So yeah I don't go back there anymore.

Can we post hiking picks in here too?
I'm going to go next weekend now that you've inspire me.. Or should we post somewhere else.

Fucking idiot.

Here's a few from this weekend's trip. I summitted three mountains, the tallest of which was 10,840. Overall, a great trip but I got back late and had to hike the last few miles with a flashlight. Don't recommend.
