Yosemite – Glacier Point Rd

It is getting warm and spring has come. Winter snow is melting away and before its all gone, I want to enjoy it at least one more time. This Yosemite trip I was able to get a wilderness permit and snowshoe up Glacier Point Rd. I get to the trailhead and start hiking...

Yosemite – Camp 4

The plan for this trip was to get to Badger Pass Ski Area and snowshoe to Glacier Point. Spend a night and snowshoe about 6 miles back and spend Saturday night cooking with some new recipes. Didn't happen that way. I get to Badger Pass at around 9. Spend an hour...

Why do I go mountaineering?

Getting outside is more than just getting exercise to me. Its healing, its calming, and more importantly it gets me out of city life if even for a quick weekend. Introspection. You can argue with the mountain but at the end of the day, the mountain gets the last word. A controlled brush with death is a good thing, no? It’s not that scary all the time but its exhilarating. It gives me a new perspective on life. The mountains make you humble. After countless days/weeks in the gym, when I do some mountaineering I see where I can improve pretty quickly. Doing it with people you love/care about is also a great reason to get outside! So this is my outdoor story.
