Chimp Face, Chimp Noise

Crossing the Siskiyous, the 'highest point on I-5' at 4319 feet.

Rapid incline, slope at 6 percent over a few miles.  You do the math.

My ears did it for me:  clog, pop, clog.

The most effective way of clearing my (Eustachian) tubes:  underslinging the jaw, and rapidly, in short chopping rises, reenact a pseudo-evolutionary transformation of myself from ape to man.

OOO-aah-aah-aah.  Ooo-ooo-ooo-aah.

Children of the height, what music they make.
