Sorry to hear about your RC experience, JW, They are right, about the simulator. The savings on trashed planes will way more than pay for the program. You can even fly in the rain.

MustangsX2 wrote: The tallest point at the end of the tunnel image is Clouds Rest. It can also be seen to the right Half Dome in the image from Glacier Point. If you ever want a challenging day hike with spectacular views of ALL of Yosemite, that is the place to go. You can look down on Half Dome from there. Like Half Dome, you must obey the weather when thinking about going up there as the top is extremely narrow and the falls are fatal. My 11 yr old son and I did the hike one day, about 15 miles round trip from Tenaya Lake and moderate vertical. It is very tough, unless acclimated to 8k feet, but rewarding. Curtis

The top itself of Clouds Rest isn't all too narrow, just a short spot to get there is a little narrow. On top is enough space for a group of 8 or so to spend the night

from August 1990













this one shows Tenaya Lake in the distance - image center shows Olmsted Point, a popular lookout on the Tioga road where most people stop to take a look at Half Dome.








The view from Clouds rest is among the best in the entire Sierra, far better than the view from Half Dome (because you don't see Half Dome when you stand on top of it)

Last night around 11:30 Chandler came to me and asked if we could get up early and watch the sun rise from the Cub. A little calculation put wake up time at about 5 to make sure we were in place at sunrise. The only appropriate response to a request like that is...."Sure!"

Lo and behold, the deep tones of my Buddy Bryan Martin greeted us as we taxied out, he was just opening the tower. We had 20 minutes to actual sunrise. After a slow motion rendition of the Top Gun tower buzz, we headed north to watch the day begin...............

Very nice Jim. If I was younger, I'd be submitting my application to be one of your grandkids. Way to go papa! While I've never been to your part of Texas, the morning light you enjoy is amongst the best.

Enroute to Yosemite during my USAF years, we pulled the Jeep over to a state run campsite. There was a latrine with a shower. It was late February, and we simply threw our sleeping bags on the ground by the Jeep. Woke up the next morning, began brushing our teeth at a nearby water faucet. A truck with a cab-over camper parked during the night. The door opened and a very tall beautiful blond lady came out, stretching, wearing an unbuttoned mans shirt and bikini bottoms. (Did I mention the three of us were 19-21 years old?) Our brushing stopped as she walked by, smiled and said good morning...we began gagging on the toothpaste.

Without speaking, we continued brushing our teeth at that faucet, looking at the latrine. I guess we were waiting for a return visit. After about 10 minutes of brushing, the door on the camper opened. A 300+ pound, very hairy bearded guy squeezed out the door, minus a shirt. Before he took 10 steps from the camper door, the Jeep was speeding to Yosemite. California, nice place to visit.

Priceless indeed Jim, I'm sure that is a lifetime memory for both of you.
Actually saw a Cub for the first time last Saturday.

Thanks Guys. Definitely a sunrise to remember. We've got hot and hazy now with the days topping out in the low hundreds. This morning was pretty hazy, but smooth as glass. We were up for about 1.5 and Chandler flew the Cub for most of that. I coached him on climbs, descents, coordinated turns, he took to it like a duck to a June bug. This is the first time he really "flew" the airplane. When Bryan cleared us for a low approach Chandler popped on the intercom and said, "Wait, Papa! You're not expecting me to land this are you?!" I told him that we'd save that lesson for another day.

Couldn't help remembering the last sunrise circuit around the lakes, it was with Glenn. I envisioned him watching us with a big grin, leaning back and saying, "Remarkable!"
