So, I'm walking along Angeles Crest in late April, 1977, and stop to take a
break on a bank below a ski lift. The snow is just melting off of this bank
and there are beer cans scattered around. I poke one with my ice axe,
figuring it is empty, and lo and behold it squirts beer all over!!!!
"SWEET!" echoes across the Antelope Valley in the distance. I collect about
6 to 8 full cans and find a cold stream nearby to camp by and cool the beer.
The stars in the sky, the wind in the trees, and everything looks a bit
rosier with 8 cans of beer!!
A poor, grainy photo in the waning light of that great day;
The memories from the trail invade my mind every day, and still provide a
drive, an intense drive to excel and succeed. It drives me on and on . . .
