Mt Whitney

Tony, Linda, and I took a short trip to summit Mt Whitney.
I have lots of photos to process for several trips, but here is a little video I shot from the summit.

Enjoy,

Green Beans

I took some green beans on my recent TRT thru hike.
To minimize rehydration problems, I prepared them french style.

P1060022
Apparently, there are "frenchers" on the market that slice beans. I don't have one, I have a knife, and it works well. I chop off the stem end, and then split with the knife.

P1060029
All sliced up and ready for cooking. I'm using red fresno chili peppers, garlic, and a little soy for my seasoning.

P1060030
I just puree the chilis and some soy in a blender.

P1060035
The chili sauce.

P1060036
Quickly cook some garlic on high heat.

P1060037
Add the beans and sauce, stir, cover, 30 seconds of cooking, remove from heat.

Prepared beans ready for drying.

Dried beans, packaged and ready to go.
