Once again I’ll be back on the Mount Whitney Trail, and this year I’m going to summit. Getting a permit for the second time is a privilege. My first visit was in May 2015 and what a great adventure it was. Even though I was fully prepared at my last attempt, it didn’t bring me all the way to the top. This year I’m twice as prepared and will prevail. What might… Read More
Death Valley is more than just Badwater and record high temperatures. Grab a 4×4 Jeep to see the vast and empty-seeming landscape in a new way. I took off for a day trip to see Barker Ranch, a remote place free of tourists but with a lot of history to tell. It was the last hideout of Charles Manson and his followers.

I’m getting ready for my upcoming adventure trip. I got some cool hiking planned. Take a look. Mount Charleston 11,916 ft (3.632 m) Mount Langley 14,032 ft (4.277 m) Mount Whitney 14,505 ft (4.421 m) Mount Whitney is a joker as I’m not sure about the conditions at this time of the year. If it’s too snowy, then I’m screwed. We’ll see. I’m hoping to get a little altitude-fun. I got another… Read More
