The extreme multi-year drought continues and the snow levels for the southern Sierra only reached about 50% of normal. A side effect is that hiking at elevation is already possible in June.
Two mountains were left on my San Bernardino List of the Sierra Club 100 Peaks List (actually 280 mtns.)
American Indian history has always been interesting to me, so for our annual Father/Daughter trip this year, Quinn and I traveled to southern Utah to find and explore some ancient Anasazi ruins.
Looking for some solitude I did a quick, last-minute hike up San Gorgonio with bivouac on the summit. This was something I always had wanted to do. Forecast conditions were favorable with no wind and lows around 50 F (10 C).
