This is the oldest photo I could find of John Stewart and me, along with Dave Stilwell (who is my second-oldest friend) poolside at Pine Street in Alexandria, Virginia. This was taken nearly 40 years ago, more than likely by my Mother, Ernestine Justice Hinton.

Ojito Wilderness NM

My hobby is ‘bagging’ wildernesses, that is, having photos taken of me with wilderness signs. A few are self-portraits, like the one above. Most have been taken by my spirit guide, Merri Rudd. We’ve visited all of the wildernesses in New Mexico, and more than a few in the Four Corners and along the Rockies. I’ve finally gathered some of the photos that identify those wildernesses. More to come, I hope.

The Wilderness of My Soul is a post from Ah, Wilderness! . Let me know what you think. peace, mjh

OK, I did name the wilderness in the photos themselves. These newest photos are the oldest. (I know, it sounds wrong, but it’s true.) We took a trip to the unnamed wilderness in June with friends Melissa and Lew. We camped in a campground, instead of the jack-camping we did in August. Follow the link for all photos (14 from June plus the previously posted 60 from August).

My brother, Dan, and sister-in-law, Sharon, have lived in San Francisco for about 40 years. In May, Merri and I flew to visit them for the first time in ages. As befits the City, we walked a lot. In fact, we used many forms of transportation but didn’t once get in a car.

We saw many fantastic murals and great architecture.

We toured the waterfront.

We had a great time. And I heard that although people say San Francisco occupies 49 square miles, it is actually 47. More photos.
