A mountain birthday

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Get or Give Half Dome permits<HERE>

Yesterday was the birth anniversary of a Yosemite Mountain guide named Scott Gerhman. His friends knew he loves Half Dome and had this cake made up … yes, that’s HD!!

Happy Birthday Scott!


     You might have run into him on the trail. He is the Executive Director of a non-profit called Lasting Adventures, Inc. He’s stepped off over 3,000 personal miles across the Sierra in 14 years.   He’s not a dumb lumberjack – he holds an MA in Counseling as well as the required certifications in Basic Backpacking Awareness and Wilderness First Responder. We met at the 100th Boy Scout Anniversary in Pleasanton (attended by about 16,000 people!).  Give him a call if you need a guided trip! 

      Here’s a shot of John T. at the top of HD  …  say, what’s the book he’s holding???

    Hey, let us be kind and gracious toward lumberjacks, and the excellent work they do. There are “DUMB” individuals in all vocations, even priests, doctors, and world leaders.
