Got some time off this week to head out for some snow fun. Little unprepared as it came together last minute, and I forgot snowshoes (it was two feet deep at some spots) but still better than time spent indoors. Also thought I could get away with bringing my -7C three season sleeping bag.....I couldn't.  Spent a couple nights in full clothing inside the bag. Whoops. Gotta love the Trailspace merino beanie though!

So I thought this maybe a fun topic. Mine was the first time I heard a Mt.Lion scream I was young and not expecting to ever hear something like that. Myself and the 4 other campers I was with kicked up that fire and stayed wide awake as we heard it 2 more times.As soon as it was light enough we packed out and went to the ranger station to tell them what we heard up there in case someone was hurt or missing .He smiled and pulled out a tape recorder and played back exactly what we heard! He told us what it was and we all felt much better. Saw a few odd rock formations way off the trails you could tell they had been there awhile but that's about it.

Lack of snow led to a change in plans, but that meant I had a chance to sneak in my once a year, Bay of Fundy trip I'd given up on getting in. Who could imagine the TS running cap being appropriate for late December at this latitude?

Also got the chance to break in my new Unaweep :) Look for trip report sooner and pack review later.

It had to have been winter of 94-95, I was stationed at a small Kaserne (post) just outside Idar-Oberstein, Germany, called Strassburg Kaserne. It was really a great place to be, my battalion was the only one there and all the higher-ups were about 20km away in the city of Baumholder so we didn't see much of the usual silliness you have when there are people with eagles and stars on their hats around. More importantly, once you left the post heading north you were in the woods. They were dotted here and there with small villages, but there was more than enough forest that you could hike for a weekend without seeing anyone else. Which a friend and I did quite a bit of! (He also played the bagpipes, I'd go to his room to get him for something and someone would say that Rex left with his pipes. He always headed to the woods to play at full volume, and I'd be able to hear & find him if he was within a mile or so.)

Anyway, on a pretty regular basis I'd throw my sleeping bag, foam pad, and a few other things in my rucksack, and hike out a few miles just to sleep outside. One cold night I found a sort of tunnel under the bottom tree branches just off the trail, so I pushed the pack in, unrolled the sleeping bag & pad, and crashed. Some time later I awoke - and by "awoke" I mean eyes opening so quickly your eyelids click and your whole body jerks. Not your normal awakening by any stretch of the imagination. I lay there listening with all my might, trying to hear any noise through the sleeping bag, closing my eyes so I'd hear better and willing my heart to stop beating so loudly. SOMEthing had woken me up but after what must have been at least a few minutes of listening I didn't hear or sense anything, so I just went back to sleep. The rest of the night was uneventful.

After waking up and eating breakfast I looked around for any evidence of something that might have woken me up, but without any idea of what to look for I probably wouldn't have known it if I'd seen it. Maybe I'll start googling for supernatural happenings in the area of the Idar-Oberstein Edelsteinminen ("noble stone" or geode mines.)

This fella is a wealth of knowledge, and a mileage-driven backpacker! Every once in a while, a slow hiker (me) runs into a guy that's planning an unsupported, ZERO-RESUPPLY end-to-end of the Long Trail... He's got some more Pemi red-lining to do in the meantime! Nice camping with a legend!

My daughters first Sierra experience and a first at 11,000 feet!  All of her local hikes and trips pretty much trained her for this one...an epic 3-day adventure in the Eastern Sierra :)

Snapped this on day seven half a mile from one heck of an ice cream cone.

My daughter sent along this tiny stuffed zebra to keep me company. I took a series of pics of it for her and since I had him out let him get into a TS shot early in the trip at Middle Fowler in BSP.

No time to rest as the cross country national parks tour starts in a little over a week. Trip reports will have to just keep piling up I guess. Get out there when you can!

Took my little man out for a hike this morning (and by hike I mean walk three steps, pick up rock, walk three steps pick up stick, walk two steps and bang stick against tree).

Sappy Alert: Its so rewarding to see him interested in the little things around him, especially in this age of iPads and t.v. He walked the entire thing himself (only a KM loop) and I'm already dreaming of the day I can get him fitted for some full grain leather boots!

Hat didn't show up under the net so I had to put it on top for this shot. Even that was risky but no way I was sitting there without a net and holding still.

Posing with me in the distance is the Knife Edge peeking over the shoulder of Hamlin. Winter is coming, get out there while you can!

West Bond looking toward Bond Cliff. Sorry about the big rock in the way but I was focused on not falling off the mountain when I jumped in front of the camera to beat the 10 second timer. Trip report eventually, but I have a week in BSP on my plate first.

Sure hope you folks are getting out there!

Well, not really on the trail I guess. Got a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about, and stay overnight, at the Mount Washington weather observatory last weekend. After a brutally cold ascent the hospitality and passion of those working at the top instantly warmed us all up.

I'm putting together a more in depth trip report and gear list if anyone is interested.

I'm the one in the trailspace beanie (in case that wasn't obvious!)

The sun came out for ten minutes just as I finished setting up camp. I had to peel off a sweaty base layer anyway so it seemed the perfect time for digging the TS hat out and sitting down for a pic.

Note the Adidas Terrex Swift Climaheat Frost Jacket has been unpacked and is puffing up on top of the tent.  Hiking in the cold may be sweaty work but camping in the cold is a very different story! :)

At the summit of Black Mountain, in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We take a New Years Day hike on January 1 of almost every year. This is almost astraddle of the San Andreas Fault. If you look carefully, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the background on the right, just above the distant hills.

Round trip distance 10 miles, cumulative gain 2620 feet, summit temperature 44°F, wind 10 knots, wind chill 33°F. Note the Trailspace beanie!
IMG_0003.jpg

These annual hikes always have lots of friendly hikers on the Rhus Ridge/Black Mountain trail, meeting old friends and new. One of our new friends is a sports arena landscaper, who is responsible for redoing the Levi Stadium surface before every event. Another has lived on the road that leads to the parking lot (usually filled to overflowing) almost all his life (his parents have owned the house for something over 50 years). Meeting and talking with all these people slowed us down a lot from usual - it took 5 hours car to car.

Underground photography is not my specialty. So here's a Trailspace sticker on my caving helmet...

This weekend was the annual Bond Brook Tread Fest trail running and mountain biking festival in central Maine with a number of trail races for kids and adults.

treadsq.jpg

The 5-miler I ran also doubled as the 2014 USA Track and Field state trail championship, which was kind of neat. I thought it would be fun to say I went to States.

It also meant that since I signed up as a USATF member my USATF age group win made me a Maine State Champion. (USATF State Champions are done by age group, not overall. I was third female overall in the race.) Confused yet? It simply means I got a nifty patch and medal.

tread2sq.jpg

Plus, a pint glass and Clif protein bar for my winnings!

How long can you request that your family members refer to you as The Champ? I'm pretty sure that 24 hours in we've already passed that point.

This was in the John Muir Wilderness on a trail off a high-clearance 4x4 road near Mammoth Lakes CA.  I camped near Lake Genevieve high above Convict Lake.  There was lots of thunder and lightning all around that night, but only a little rain where I was, and some light showers the next morning.  Probably due to the difficult access, I didn't see a single person on the trail in either direction, and little sign of use in the area where I camped.  Nice :)
