This was on the trail toward Alta Peak in Sequoia National Park, a couple miles from the peak.  I turned around because I ran out of time (and because the trail crossed a steep slope, and I saw a couple mini avalance snowballs, or at least that's what I imagined they were).  I'm lacking in experience in winter conditions to make me comfortable crossing such a spot, especially when solo, and especially on a trail with no fresh tracks (so I am confident there wasn't anyone for at least a couple miles in any direction).

Anyway it was a most excellent hike.  I was in the fog and clouds hiking up to the ridge at Panther Gap.  A while later, along the ridge, the clouds began to clear and I was treated to an amazing view with an undercast.

I camped in the new winter camping area at Wolverton "snow play area" in the park.  Unfortunately the winter camping at Lodgepole campground is no more.  Due to budget constraints they closed Lodgepole for the winter.  Apparently this was due to maintenance costs (and running the heat to maintain the rest room).  The new camping area isn't as nice (it's basically a parking lot) but it's better than the place being shut down completely.

Another snow camping trip close to home.  Light rain overnight.  Using my old Radius 20 to melt snow for drinking and fixing a pasta dinner.

This was from a little day hike this weekend on the Horton Creek Trail outside of Bishop, CA.


Horton-Creek-full.jpg


and it also involved snow camping!!!  Yes, there's snow there!  :-D

But seriously, it was cold ... in the mid-upper teens in the morning.  That's cold based on my camping preferences ...  though as you can see by my hiking shirt above, it warmed up nicely in the sun during the day.

Here's my trusty ole Mtn Hardwear Skyview 1.5 newly refurbished with new door zippers courtesy of Mountain Hardwear.

My old Zip-o-gauge said -4F Sunday AM at 7 but my nose hairs said no.   Here I was a few miles from home again, solo snow camping.  Using my Radius 43 and MSR GK stoves.  The TS stickers don't seem to want to get plastered on classics.

A smart person would have taken the headlamp off.

Anywho....It was a great New Years Eve in the swamp.

Took my 'trailspace' sticker on a hike in the high peaks of the Adirondacks...we are missing all the snow we usually have in December!  No snow but lots of ice though:(

I took a couple days off before the high retail season and car camped with my partner at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Cache, Oklahoma. The weather was beautiful and the scenery even more so on some great day hikes where we saw boulder fields and American bison. I had to take my new Trailspace hat for its maiden outing. Thanks, Trailspace!

So I took on the grueling endeavor of an epic journey to the grocery store.

With the fear of gloom and doom from the hurricane known as Sandy the grocery store can be quite a cantankerous place to successfully navigate.

My journey begins in the aisle known as the infamous "numero 13":

image.jpg

As you can see in the photo above I am quite optimistic and enthusiastic to be partaking on such an epic endeavor of this magnitude.

At the midway point(the grueling "aisle of soup") you can see that the terrain and obstacles(shopping carts) are beginning to take their toll on me by my facial expression(diminishing smile:)

image.jpg

And finally I summit the "frozen food aisle." Thank goodness I had my base layers on. Man was it cold. 

image.jpg

I cannot believe that I was successful in accomplishing such a monumental feat of this magnitude. 

I would like to thank my sponsor(my wife Tracey.) Without her none of this would have been possible. 

Happy hiking. :p

I recently received a suggestion that a TS sticker would look great on my hard hat...

I thought why stop at 1? (both sides look the same)

My wife and I got out for a short little hike on the Sierra Discovery Trail.  There's about a foot of snow covering most of it, and soon it'll be time for the snowshoes!!  Whoo-hoo, can't wait!!

I went on a day hike this afternoon in the Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve in Nor Cal today, an estimated 7-8 miles.  This was a break-in hike for the new hat, its first time "in the wild" :).

I really love Trail Space!  This is the best spot on the web for gear info.

Case Mt  isn't much of a mountain at 744 feet but it does look out over the Connecticut river valley just east of Hartford.  This is Big Red (the golden retriever not the Trailspace member) at the top.

This was the first night of four on a road trip to OR.  The Park is east of Fortuna, CA and west of Grizzly Creek Redwood State Park along Hwy 36.  This time of the year and on a weekday, it was only occupied by a small fraction of its capacity.

An awkward fashion statement but the back of my neck burns very easily, cap backwards adds to my street cred on the mountain...

Hats off to you NH, mostly cause the hat had to go through the wash after smelling it! It is hands down the best outdoorsy areas I've ever been to. My dad and I take 2 vacations a year there, one to ice climb and one to hike and just keep coming back for more. If you havn't been I highly recommend North Conway, NH, an outdoor lovers paradise!

A friend and I hit Lassen for Saturday night on our motorcycles.  On our drive out on Sunday, I almost had a bear run into my motorcycle when I was doing around 50-55 mph, just outside the Park.  I saw him off to the side as I whizzed by him as he was galloping across the road.  I'm sure my exhaust burned his nose hairs as he continued across the road behind me. Thank you for the hat, very nice cap.

OK, maybe I've overdone it a bit here, LOL.  But (just like the JMT) when I do something, I go all the way :).

Here are "a few" shots showing the Trailspace hat & stickers on my 30-day John Muir Trail thru-hike last month.  There would have been more (photos) but (1) it rained a lot so the stickers on the water bottles & bear can were hidden under the pack cover, and (2) I lost the Trailspace hat at one of my re-supply points at approx. 90 miles in.  Besides, I started to feel like one of those race car drivers with a company name plastered all over their car O^o.

image.jpg

Only 211 miles to go (to the end of the JMT, then another 10 after that).  This was at Happy Isles where the JMT begins (for SoBo hikers).

image.jpg

A trail sign near Tuolomne Meadows

image.jpg

The first "real" pass ... Donahue Pass


image.jpg

As the sign indicates :)


image.jpg

Stocked up on food for another 4 day segment... Bearikade Expedition loaned courtesy of speacock.


image.jpg

Self-shot (hence the from-the-ground view ... no tripod on this trip).  This was near Tully Hole, a very scenic area before Silver Pass

image.jpg

And this is on Silver Pass

image.jpg

Dinner on a cold wet day (day 2 of 10 with rain)...


image.jpg

Dinner with a view ... overlooking Evolution Lake, a particularly scenic area!


image.jpg

Muir Hut at Muir Pass!


image.jpg

Packing up for the trail after a night in Upper Vidette Meadow.  It was laundry day, too, as shown by the socks hanging out to dry.


image.jpg

Again, as the sign indicates :).  The Trailspace sticker is on the bottle at the extreme left of the shot).  The trail switchbacks down a nearly vertical face to the south on the other side of that sign, to the 11,000 ft plateau below.  I was very glad it was dry that day...  actually it was hot in the sun, but I wasn't complaining! :)


image.jpg

Summit of Mt. Whitney (someday when I'm bored I'll use Photoshop to clone out that unwanted person in the photo ... there were a lot of them on that summit and on the trail out from there...)


image.jpg

Perched on the USGS plaque at the actual summit of Mt. Whitney (previous & next photo).  Owens Valley & the town of Lone Pine in the distance before that next ridge.
