RT part 9: California and a 50 Mile Run

Sept 28 SHR mile 128 I didn’t sleep so well in the Mammoth Lakes Motel 6 last night. Probably the combination of lack of air conditioning, the tractor trailer trucks rolling through the parking lot, or most likely that I’m just not used to sleeping in beds. I ate good though. Sara and I went … Continue reading RT part 9: California and a 50 Mile Run

RT part 8: Sierra High Route from Road’s End to Red’s Meadow

Sept 22 SHR Mile 18 The Sierra High Route isn’t so much a trail but more of a route through California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. It stretches roughly 195 miles from Road’s End in King’s Canyon north to Twin Lakes near Mono Village(or the other way around but we’re going north). Unlike most of the hiking … Continue reading RT part 8: Sierra High Route from Road’s End to Red’s Meadow

RT Part 6: Holden Village to Canada

Sept 13 PCT mile 2576.8 This morning we woke up a mile outside of Holden Village at their designated campsite and walked to their dining hall for breakfast. In another lifetime this place was a copper mining camp but now it’s a Lutheran Retreat Center, and is completely off the grid.

RT Part 5: PCT from Snoqualmie Pass to Holden Village

Road Trip Part 4: PCT from White Pass to Snoqualmie Pass

Sept 2 Today was quite productive, even though I tossed and turned all night trying to sleep in the car at the rest area. Since the smoke seems to have cleared out from Washington quite a bit, Sara and I are going to try to get on the PCT for awhile. She’s got unfinished business … Continue reading Road Trip Part 4: PCT from White Pass to Snoqualmie Pass

Road Trip Part 3: The Sunshine Coast Trail

Aug 26th Lois Lake, Sunshine Coast We woke up this morning in the car at the Kin Beach CG and enjoyed a view across the Salish Sea(which is part of the Straight of Georgia) to mainland British Columbia.

Kanab, UT 4.9.18

Day 29.....22 miles.....AZT mile 712.4 Today we walked rim to rim of the Grand Canyon and it was awesome! I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile now and it absolutely lived up to the hype.

Grand Canyon South Rim, AZ

Day 25.....20 miles.....AZT mile 612.8 Our stay at the Travelodge last night gave me all the rest and strength I need for this last stretch of trail(I hope). This morning a couple of our friends, Hoho and Chicory, who had recently moved to Flagstaff had us over and cooked us an incredible breakfast. These two … Continue reading Grand Canyon South Rim, AZ
