Re: Banff National Park: Hiking Johnson Lake

PHeymont ·
Fascinating to see that a hike in such rugged scenery can actually be an easy walk! There must be many more like that, that compare to a serious city walk and not to mountain-climbing. Good!

You get closer each time to getting me into non-urban hiking...but how difficult is a hike like this for someone used to that kind of distance, but in (sometimes hilly) cities, but not to much off-path hiking?

DrFumblefinger ·
The challenge of this particular trail is getting up to the lakes. Once there, the trail is not that hard, although rocky so you have to watch your footing. There are easier places to get into the subalpine zone of some great mountains, PHeymont. Both in California and in the Rockies. When you're ready, we'll pick one and head out there. Likely for a day hike. My knees don't like the weight of a full backpack anymore.

PHeymont ·
My knees are part of my concern; they love walking (helps them!) but don't do well twisted or weighted. Have you any suggestions for the Hudson Valley/Lower Catskills area?

Re: Sequoia National Park: Hiking to Pear Lake (The Lakes Trail)

DrFumblefinger ·
I've never hiked in the Catskills, though would like to some day. My suggestion: 1) Go to your local library. They definitely will have hiking books on areas of interest (or request them in advance so they can be delivered from other branches). Check out some trails that are convenient and look doable. Most hiking books give great details. 2) If you find a great book, it's worth buying to have as a reference at home and take with you on the trail. For example, though I haven't read it, this...

Thank you for another look at a place and life that are so different from mine...and that yet reminds me that each of us goes forward each day with the common necessity of living, contributing and contemplating the next day.

Hello again Theodore Sorry for the late response to your question. Personally, I do not think it is worth the time and effort it would take for you to drive to Duluth from Minneapolis for only one day in the winter time. The ride from Minneapolis to Duluth one way on Interstate 35 will take you 2.5 hours, and that's under good driving conditions. In the winter, chances are you will encounter bad weather, and that will definitely add to your driving time. Duluth doesn't shut down in the...

It`s impressive to see those big freighters making their way through that narrow canal, just clearing that interesting bridge!

Love the bridge. I like cool designs like this. Hey -- I'm going to Minneapolis in 2 months. Is it worth going to Duluth for a day in the winter time? Or does the place shut down then?

Re: Crater Lake — The Most Beautiful Lake In The World(!?)

GarryRF ·
Certainly is beautiful DrF !! Those snow capped mountains scare me off from wanting to dive into the lake. People do apply odd descriptions to wonderful things. My favourite is "It was breath-taking" The number of times I've applied the Heimlich manoeuvre to someone who's been choking on a magnificent vista. Please tell me - are the Canadians addicted to calling everything "Awesome" too ?

Re: Crater Lake — The Most Beautiful Lake In The World(!?)

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for your comments, Garry. The lake, as you would expect for one so high up, is too cold for most people to want to swim in it. But it's pretty awesome, eh? I'd say the "eh?" is perhaps the best way to identify a Canadian. Awesome I've heard used most everywhere I go, and Awesome certainly can be applied to this lake. Hope you have a very pleasant New Year, GarryRF!

I would describe both Crater Lake and the Grand Canyon as Awe inspiring.. A fitting use of the word. You all have yourself an Awesome year too - eh ?

I'm enjoying reading these Blogs ! Very educational. Natural history is so interesting. Thanks DrF. Did you know that during the dry season Alligators dig holes in the river bed. When the river swells in the wet season these holes fill with water. And Fish. The Alligator does not harm them. He goes off to find his food in the river. When the river dries out he is left with holes full of Fish who have taken refuge from the receding water. They are the Alligators "Larder" to get him through...

Thanks for the comment, GarryRF. I do love love nature and natural history and often my travels center around seeing these sorts of sights. I did not know that about alligators and the fish. But I can't say I'm surprised. Nature has developed marvelous mechanisms of adaptation that never cease to amaze me. What I am looking forward to, as are others, is your first piece on those great Cuban cars. Not nature, but beauty of a different kind!
