The Mountaineer

I browsed through some of my old photo files the other day and came across this old slide. This is my son Jim fourty-one years ago. We were into rock climbing and here he is practicing repelling. This brought back old memories. Forty some years ago we had scaled several notable mountain peaks including Castle Peak in the White Clouds, Mt. Borah, Idaho’s highest peak, Mt. Teewinot, the sixth highest peak in the Teton range, plus many rock outcrops and ledges.

I have thousands of photo slides stashed away most of which I haven’t seen for decades. It’s a difficult job to sort through box after box of forgotten slides to find photos to show friends and family. One answer to the problem is to digitize them and sort them into folders for easy access. The above photo is an example of a scanned slide. My big problem ahead is how do I go about scanning ten thousand slides? I am using a Wolverine 35mm film to digital converter. Four slides are placed in a rack and moved through the device. It takes just seconds to scan each slide. As simple as the process is I’m afraid that I will have a very long white beard before I get all of my slides processed.
