Joseph H Stewart (JustAnotherJoe)

Hello family and friends...both old and new...Joe and Ines Stewart here, a.k.a. "just-another-joe and his new wife", and we hope you enjoy this website.

We live in Southern California in a nice area near Corona called Horsethief Canyon Ranch that adjoins the Cleveland National Forest at Trabuco, Santiago, and Modjeska Peaks with elevations up to 5700 ft. The views are great and the weather excellent almost all year round. This area provides close access to both the southern mountains and beaches, and is ideally suited to those who enjoy outdoor activities. We enjoy traditional strength training exercises, hiking, cycling, skiing, and adventure photography as hobbies among others.

I am a retired plant general manager from a premium forest products company, International Paper. Our company also proudly supports and is a leader in the sustainable forestry initiative (SFI) where we replant more trees than we harvest each year, and harvest only "crop" tree plantations and not old growth forest.

Ines works as the VP of a Diversity and Inclusion program with Wells-Fargo Home Mortgage, and covers multicultural development of executive management personnel across the entire US and Alaska.

A limited number of the gallery files will be password protected for family only, so please contact me for the access PIN. My email address is "josephstewart3551@gmail.com".

Please keep in mind that this is "work in progress" and that we will update photo files and galleries approximately every two weeks. The text descriptions of the gallery and individual photos normally take the longest to write and input, so we appreciate your patience in advance.

My personal goals are to complete the fifty U.S. state highpoints, the seven (or eight) Global highpoints, and visit both North and South Poles, while simultaneously taking some beautiful documentary photos.

Galleries identified with a " ^^ " double peak in the title indicate Global highpoint hikes.

Galleries identified with a " ** " double asterisk in the title indicate US state highpoint hikes.
