Watch producer Jonathan Burhop’s short film on art photographer Howard Weamer. Since 1974, Weamer has spent every winter tending Ostrander hut in the Yosemite backcountry. Watching and listening to Weamer, who looks like John Muir and takes photos like Ansel Adams, spurs the urge to replicate his poetic lifestyle. We should hope to. Thanks to Kyle Cassidy at Wend and the Adventure Life for bringing it to our attention.
