    Yosemite Falls, Panorama Cliff, Tuolomne Grove

    Back in july my girl and i went down to San Francisco to visit her grandparents. On the way there we were able to camp for two nights in Yosemite, and do a little hiking. Not quite as much as i would have liked, but you know, it's never enough. We slept at a rest stop on the way down, and then...

    Stan and I recently celebrated 9 years together by hiking in the Eastern Sierra. Nothing adventurous in this trip, just a lot of relaxation and enjoying the outdoors. The Sierra Nevada has two distinct regions-the Western Sierra, which is very forested and lush because it creates a rain...

    Emerald & Pear Lake - Sequoia National Park - August 3-5, 2013

    Just after the stroke of midnight I set off for Sequoia National Park on my first solo packing adventure. Arriving at Lodgepole Ranger station about an hour early I had time to ponder if my original trip was a bit too much to chew; buddy and I had planned a 5 day trip over Silliman Pass with...

    Mount Langley Summit

    Not sure if this should be backpackacking or hiking... I'll go with backpacking as that's the way I did the trip! Last weekend was time for another "Beyond Utah" hike. It was a fairly short jaunt up to Mount Langley -- a 14er in the southern Sierras. It's a relatively easy summit near Mt...
