giJ -- 15 September 2007. I've worked at Element CXI for two
and a half years now. Yow. Three more trips, at least:
2007 Cherry Creek. Just do a Google search for Cherry Creek August. Wow.
Tuolomne to Vogelsang, Evelyn Lake, Lyell Canyon. Ben's 12 now.
Kings Canyon in 2006 September, near Sugarloaf and Roaring
River Ranger Station, up and over Avalanche Pass (just over 10000 feet)
and then down down down, and down some more, down to Road's End.
With gvdl and Patty. And frogs.
ehQ is the 22nd of August 2005. Man, it's been a long time since
I updated this page. Sorry. Hmm, the last real TR I did was
July of 2000. It's now over five years later, and I haven't
been avoiding backpacking, just haven't collected writings about
it here. Here's my to-do list:
Did two really local ones this year so far;
(both of them mostly in Portola SP and Pescadero Creek area).
The first was with Patty D and gvdl; she was training for
a strenuous Sierra trip, and I was pretty out of shape, but
we worked out ways where I could take shortcuts while gvdl
and Patty took the longer route.
The second one was with my 10-year-old nephew Ben.

bunch of photos.
