My wife Margaret and I keep a small bucket list of ongoing Sierra trip ideas. Some are new, but many are returns to memorable places from years ago.  In September 2017,  we enjoyed a nine-day journey in Kings Canyon, returning to the White Divide and Goddard Creek via Lamarck Col. We decided to revisit the exquisite basins we remembered from our traverse of the White Divide in 1983 - long before kids!  We are in our sixties now, and five of nine days of rough cross-country travel over miles and miles of talus (and this year snow) with heavy packs, requires "one careful step at a time". This capture was made on rainy, windy, maybe a bit scary night with lightning for hours. It was one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen in the High Sierra! A brilliant Milky Way and lightning over Mount Goodard the Hermit.
