Time for a road trip so Dorie and I took off for Central California.
Uwe, John, and I set out to traverse the Wind River Range. It was truly an adventure filled with awesome beauty, a little adversity, and some minor distress. (Read on)
This was a multi-day solo backpacking trip to climb some of the peaks in the Taboose Pass area. I put this together after learning that there is a good route up Split Mtn. and I wanted to climb Arrow Peak after seeing it so prominently earlier in June.
Jack, John, Srisuda and I met at the trailhead for Sawmill Pass the night before the hike since we wanted to get an early start. There were a few peaks we wanted to try to climb and Srisuda and I also wanted to enjoy some time at nice Sierra lakes.
John and I went up to Cottonwood Pass with the intent to climb a few 13ers. We left early in the morning and arrived at the Horseshoe Meadow trailhead around noon.
This year’s Father/Daughter trip was a traverse hike the length of Catalina Island.
John and I went up to Taboose Pass for an early season Sierra backpack and attempt to ascent 2 mountains: Striped Mtn. (13,185 ft / 4019 m), Cardinal Mtn. (13,402 ft / 4085 m).
On Dorie’s and my annual trip to the South Carolina beach, I noticed 2 summits I had not previously climbed.
