Trip Report: very dry leaves sketchy water sources, 2 nights up Rush Creek September 28, 2021 - Some gear notes below, but for now let’s start at the beginning: I drove up Hwy 395 last Thursday, enjoying mountain views now that the wind changed direction and the area was more hazy than filled with brown smoke. By the time I made it to the June Lake Loop and skies were blue and … Continue reading Trip Report: very dry leaves sketchy water sources, 2 nights up Rush Creek
Trip report: into thin air on San Gorgonio August 23, 2021 - Yesterday I summitted San Gorgonio via the Vivian Creek Trail. It took 4:50 to get up there (11,503 ft) and 4:03 to get down (6,080′) for 18 miles in 9 hours, but my overall moving time was 8 hours and that is pretty great for me so training has really paid off. I must say … Continue reading Trip report: into thin air on San Gorgonio
Trip Report: a hot Modjeska Peak August 16, 2021 - The training continues, this time super locally (25 minute drive on local streets). Most of the area to the east is closed due to a devastating fire, but this area was green and lush looking (when you are in it, it’s poking brush and cactus). I’d never been on this trail before, idea and hiking … Continue reading Trip Report: a hot Modjeska Peak
Trip Report: Cottonwood Trails of the Eastern Sierra August 9, 2021 - Smoke from the Dixie fire filled the high desert. When I was driving up early Saturday the Inyo Mountains were not visible at all and the Sierra was faint from the 395. I was not optimistic about hiking. The winding, steep Horseshoe Meadows Road felt like being in a void: nothing could be seen over … Continue reading Trip Report: Cottonwood Trails of the Eastern Sierra
Trip Report: Lovely San Jacinto August 3, 2021 - Whew, another tough one! I revisited the steep Marion Mountain Trail for the first time in many years: a 5.6 mile (official, my elevation map shows 11 total, which is a bit low, but some people claim 11.4+?) one way trek to the summit of San Jacinto (a rare peak that is a pile of … Continue reading Trip Report: Lovely San Jacinto
Trip Report: Steep trails around San Antonio (Mt Baldy) July 26, 2021 - Okay… OUUUUUCCCHHHH. Writing now that I showered (the amount of salt and sand-turned-mud in the humidity and sweat I could scrape off my face, and I left heel marks on my way in to get clean, ew) and ate pancakes (eating while intense exercise is difficult, so I was real low on calories despite fruit … Continue reading Trip Report: Steep trails around San Antonio (Mt Baldy)
Trip report: hiking all over Bishop Creek for Fourth of July weekend July 6, 2021 - Trip report! Man, I had a great time in the ever-stunning Bishop Creek rec area this past weekend. I did day hiking, rather than backpack, and the goal was to do trails I had not done before. I woke up shortly after 4am on Friday and was on the road by 5a to get to … Continue reading Trip report: hiking all over Bishop Creek for Fourth of July weekend
Trip Report: one night car camp, southeastern Sierra Nevada April 5, 2021 - I woke up before my alarm and was out the door by 5, arriving at Lower Gray’s Meadow Campground outside of Independence a bit after 9 for my quick Eastern Sierra trip. It looked full, but around a corner two spots were open. It was private so peeing and changing clothes were easy for me. … Continue reading Trip Report: one night car camp, southeastern Sierra Nevada
A Selfish Rant April 10, 2020 - This is a year in SoCal where we actually had a “March Miracle” snow run in our local mountains which is continuing as I write and due to government rules I cannot visit Snow Valley to ski! *cry face* I’m sure this is terrible for them, too, as so much money is seasonal. In addition, … Continue reading A Selfish Rant
Trip Report: Whitney Trail Trash Pickup July 6, 2019 - tl;dr; PICK UP YOUR TRASH – THIS INCLUDES YOUR TOILET PAPER and all the gear you bring with you when you hike. I took the opportunity to clean up trash with another volunteer and we went with a ranger Saturday morning. I did not acclimate, I have been only running recently, and I do not … Continue reading Trip Report: Whitney Trail Trash Pickup
