Good boots

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

It’s fun to see the types of footwear people use on the Half Dome hike. I truly believe in ankle high hiking boots with a stiff shank and good tread.  Check out this pair I recently saw. She said her boots just disintegrated on the hike and she had to wrap them in duct tape to continue. Well, good that they had duct tape but I doubt she did many training hikes in them. Can you imagine going up the cables in these? Sigh. I’m sure it was a long day.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” – Wimpy, Popeye the Sailor cartoons.
