Top Ten Reasons For High Sierra Mountaineering

  1. Stars! More stars than even God can count. The Milky Way really IS milky.
  2. No straight-pipe Harleys bleeting like the dying farts of wounded warthogs.
  3. Early dawn, late sunset. 
  4. Rattlesnakes and bears are mostly down below the tree line. So are almost all of the people.
  5. No cell service or WiFi.
  6. Knowing the meaning of genuine silence. 
  7. And the pure voice of the wind which runs rampant up high.
  8. Solitude.
  9. No text-distracted drivers.
  10. No Kardashians.
  11. To be continued.
