    Lost my camera bag (w/ camera and lens) over the edge of the headwall while hiking up Huntington Ravine Trail today. I backtracked to look for it but it probably landed somewhere in the jumble of...
  2. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks to all for the suggestions,

    @ Tom - When I saw my doctor about orthotics, he gave me some pointers on retraining myself to walk differently - I have tried, but I tend to go into...

    Because of this I quickly develop fairly serious calluses around my...

    Solitude and sunrise on Mt. Willey

    To avoid the bugs and the heat I decided to do a night hike this Tuesday. The small ledge just below Mt. Willey’s summit has always seemed like it would be a good place to watch the sunrise, so I...

    Class 3/4 Scrambling the Sierras?

    I'll be spending the summer in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I'd love to get in some exposed scrambling in the Sierras. Can anyone recommend some good day-hikes or single-night trips in the Sierras...
  9. Solitude, serenity and sunrise on Mt. Jackson

    I’ll preface this trip report by saying that I’ve always been a bit apprehensive about nightfall in the mountains. This probably stems from the fact that one of my first hikes was a poorly planned...

    Thanks to everyone for the great information. My mind tends to go to the worse case scenario, and after almost a week of very limited mobility I was really starting to worry. It was encouraging to...

    I'm the same way FisherCat, although I think part of it is the fact that physical exertion tends to kill my appetite. I often have to force myself to eat something while on the trail, and so while...
