What is it about the Range of Light that some people find so irresistible? I can only answer for myself, but after all these years - being there appears to be the only thing I want to do with my vacation time. That might be saying alot since I live in New Hampshire.
One of my recurring fantasies is to live on the east side and spend all my free time exploring this amazing range of mountains. That may happen, who knows. Right now I live at the foot of NH's White Mts, but I find my thoughts always drifting west to the Eastside. I came back to the Sierra late after spending many years climbing and travelling elsewhere: B.C., Wyoming, Montana and Pakistan (to name a few). I don't regret the choices I've made, I just wish I'd come to realize sooner how much I have missed the Sierra.
The ESA Gallery contains 2146 images . You can access on them in a number of ways. There is:
an interactive Image Map
a Flickr like list of Albums
a search page with tag cloud
a list of peaks climbed and
a simple linked Chronology accordian by year.
Some albums have a link to a map that shows campsite locations and if applicable, a fairly accurate overlay of cross country travel.
