Earth Day, what does it mean to you? I know Earth Day (and month) already happened this year but appreciating nature is so important to me that I didn’t want to rush posting about it. After all, we should “adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience” as Emerson so wisely said. Earth Day has only been around for 50 years but the wonderful planet that we grace with our presence… Read More

Two amazing ladies and I started an adventure in Alaska right before Christmas celebrating the life of our friend Dave. We road-tripped from Anchorage to Seward and back again, exploring what we could along the Turnagain Arm, Resurrection Bay, Portage Pass, Eklutna Lake, and Matanuska Glaicer.

Whitney a few years ago as a day hike and just this week also reached the top of White Mountain, one of only two CA 14-thousand footers that aren’t in the Sierra Nevada Range. But it still… Read More

I was finally released into the wild for the season from working and I had no plans, so of course I immediately gravitated back towards the Sierra for at least a week or two of some stellar hiking.
