  •   nickshasta5 Wonder if your visions and dreams of flying came from our ancestors @deanpotter ? 2w
  •   lightnfast @deanpotter great pic. Did you leave it? I truly do not care, but I might as well ask the question that everyone with the courage to assume but not inquire pondered. I'm quick to assume pretty much all the time, and appreciate the opportunity to observe the flipped side of the coin. 2w
  •   deanpotter The visions are a great mystery @nickshasta5. I'm not sure where they came from but they are beyond the self. I'm definitely attracted to the totem world and feel the call of the wild. 2w
  •   deanpotter If only for a second, minute, hour, year, lifetime, it's all relative @lightnfast and will always be with the earth. 2w
  •   shaggy_alexander @deanpotter I meant no negativity. Iv felt and seen similar craftsmanship. I should have been more specific. I'm a strong believer in enjoying the history others have left. Sorry I'm to ambiguous. 2w
  •   shaggy_alexander @deanpotter who's to say that the masterpiece wasn't left for you? I'm sure many a adventurer stepped over it and either didn't care or it wasn't for them to see. #goodvibes 2w
  •   shaggy_alexander One does not paint a painting, write a song or set up a route so that they can be the only one to experience its wonder(maybe some climbers but the progressive ones don't) again I meant no negative vibes. Live on brother. 2w
  •   deanpotter I enjoy your writing style @shaggy_alexander. Keep the inspiration flowing:) 2w

deanpotter The magnificent Jose Pereyra Incense Cedar Tree near El Cap Meadow, Yosemite, California. The trunk must be over 10' in diameter. Before Jose died many years ago, I saw him sitting and communing with this tree and he often commented on its unique splendor. Now, I sometimes climb it's massive armed branches to be a little closer to my fallen friend and teacher. Check out my Tree Yogis post at deanspotter.com. @adidasoutdoor, @fiveten_official, @clifbarcompany, @ruffwear, #Flyfree, #Freedom. 3w
  •   clinthelander I have never been to that tree but I love never miss a chance to commune with the John Muir tree in the meadow behind Camp Four. There is power, life and spirit to those trees. 3w
  •   boulderdoc Jose was an amazing guy; I was there in Portrero when his time came. Neat to finally see this tree that he spoke about... Thanks, Dean. 3w
  •   deanpotter Great hearing from you Noah:) I hope we get a chance to spend some time together with this ancient being one day soon. I'd love to hear your stories of Jose @boulderdoc. Hope we connect more often in the near future. 3w

  •   natrueslaws It is very sad to look back on History and See all the clear cutting and wrong management of our Forrests. But with the Progression of pollution, and population our forest face a new threat of being infested with bugs and virus. Then you through "unnatural" forest fires into the mix which burns through these already dry forrest. Which is another human error because they prevent the "Natural" wild fires from doing there job. - We truley owe alot to the forest. They give us air, shade, heat, shelter, perhaps even food for some. But whats new? Humans have also made the low lands barren with Cattle and irrigation of our water sources. What did the Central Valley look like? The Tulle elk? The Marsh? I guess we will never know..... 3w
