    Thanks for posting that, Ed. It's the double-coat which makes some breeds especially cold-tolerant. That Tibetan Mastiff is impressive - I understand that most (all?) of the giant breeds may have...

    Ellen - as others have said, start with quality tape. The Walmart flavor probably won't work well, unless it's branded 3M or similar. Also, even the good stuff doesn't last forever. I carry it on...

    It's about 1/2 mile up to the trailhead. In the past, there's been a small area plowed near 302 to leave a vehicle. I had my truck broken into there, the only time it's ever happened. Kendron...

    Bob - You might consider doing Bondcliff from Lincoln Woods rather than Zealand Hut, as 10 miles of that route is mostly flat (5 in and 5 out). Doing it from Zealand means re-climbing Zealand and Mt...

    I learned in my seven years in the Eastern Sierra that experienced hikers in the Sierra and Desert Peaks usually wear cotton, and often wear jeans. Much different approach to heat management in low...

    To clarify on Osceola's chimney - I never do it. Why risk it when there's a perfectly good bypass? But even the bypass is tricky at times.
