The time, mileage etc. is from the long and somewhat unpleasant approach to the dino, but we were out there for 8 hours. Five people with three pitches and two rappels.

Pretty neat view from the top of the pinnacle. Fun to watch all the people hiking Siphon Draw.

There is a great loop hike on Fitzroy Island that begins just north of the dive shop. I ventured up the summit track, gaining 800ft in less than a mile with countless steps. When you see the view you'll forget all about it!

Below the summit is a junction that will take you down the mountain and over to a lighthouse, which can be added on to the loop hike.

After landing and checking in at the hotel in Cairns, I hired a taxi over the the botanical gardens. From there I hiked up the Red and Blue Arrow tracks to the summit of Mount Whitfield. It's a great local hike with some a few decent views of the city and coral sea.

The coastal walk was a must do for me while staying in Sydney. The views are spectacular and the energy is great with so many people out exercising. Now I understand why there are so many fit people in this city, those stairs are never ending!

Got off the plane and felt pretty good so I took the train to Circular Quay and dropped my bags at storage. Ran up and over the bridge and back around the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Brian and I hiked up the San Bernardino Peak trail to the summit, across the ridgeline and down to the Forsee Creek trailhead where we dropped a car to make a nice point to point option.

A nice, easy run through the lower section of Usery with lots of wildlife activity. I saw a desert tortoise on Blevins, a diamondback on Spillway and two javelinas just outside the park along Crimson Road.

Afternoon trail run from the Pyramid trailhead. I ran a clockwise loop of Bursera and Gila with a small segment on National.

I saw two snakes today, a dark reddish colored coachwhip in a ravine behind Bursera Peak and a speckled rattlesnake near the trailhead.

Got in some more training for this summer's Teton trip.

Started the hike at 8:15am, began climbing around 9:00am - made the summit at 4:30pm, rappelled down and hiked out around 8:15pm.

I took Denny and Joe's recommendation and explored Skyline this morning. What an amazing little park with a big mountain feel. I really enjoyed these trails, especially Skyline Crest!

I woke up early on my last vacation day in Costa Rica for a run/hike around Manuel Antonio. So before the crowds unleashed on this incredible little park, I was able to see much of it undisturbed. Nice trails, ocean views and loads of wildlife...what's not to love?

I think I covered every trail in the park looking for sloths, toucans, caiman, iguanas, monkeys and snakes.

I arranged a two-tank boat dive (with Mad About Diving out of Uvita, CR) to visit Cano Island. I wanted to see for myself what this biological preserve had in store for us under water. The dive sites did not disappoint! Water temperature was about perfect, which was surprising being on the Pacific side. You could probably go without a wetsuit if you wanted. Clarity was even better, maybe 75 feet at times. No shortage of things to see either. Sharks patrolled the bottom while huge schools of grunts and snapper hovered around the rock pinnacles. The reef also had many surprises between the rock crevices.

Mad About Diving is a very professional operation, with a more family feel than some other shops I've been diving with in the past.

Pictures to be added soon.

Based on the permits allotted by the national park, you have two options:

Option 1 - Reserve an overnight at the basecamp located at the nine mile mark at 11,100ft. This gives you the flexibility to break the hike up into sections and is the most popular choice, especially for those that want to see the sunrise from the peak. The issue is that permits are in greater demand.

Option 2 - Day hike it. My preferred method and only choice because there were no overnight permits available.

I will start by saying this was not easy, but the thought of reaching a country high point has a way of numbing the discomfort. The trailhead sits at 5,000ft and the summit is 12,536 so there is a clean 7,500ft of elevation to be gained, not to mention the mileage, and rocky terrain, and exposed areas to the intense sun of the tropics. (just to try and put that steepness into perspective, there was nearly 5k ft of gain in the first 6 miles) None the less, it was still an incredible trek. If you're fortunate enough to catch the summit on a clear day, you can seen the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean!

The trail itself is easy to follow and there are signs (some with inspirational quotes) at every kilometer until you reach the base camp. From base camp its another 5+ kilometers to the peak, which was my favorite part. What goes up must come down (in one day) so trekking poles are highly recommended to handle all that descent.

No parking is available at the trailhead, so you will either have to walk or get a taxi from San Gerardo like I did at 3:00am!

First morning in Costa Rica so I had to go run around Sabana Park. I just missed a 10K by about 30 minutes, which I would've definitely jumped in given the chance. The national football stadium is here and the first uphill track I have ever seen. :D

Christmas Eve hike up the Oak Grove trail, attempting to summit Signal Peak. Snow was patchy on the way up, but once I hit the saddle at 9800ft, my plans abruptly changed. The trail disappeared in the snow and I didn't have the footwear to make it the final 1.5 miles to the peak. Not to mention I was solo and a storm was supposed to roll in the next day. This trail is very steep, 3,500 feet of gain in the first 3.5 miles. You will definitely have your work cut out trying to bag this peak. I loved every bit of it and will definitely be back!

I woke up to a freezing morning in the Fruita Campground and decided to go for a run to get warm. I began my tour of Capitol Reef on the Freemont River trail, down past the visitor center to the school and petroglyph site. My final destination was Hickman Bridge. This trail is less than 2 miles round trip, but had so many surprises in the short amount of time I spent there. Amazing views and a fun lasso-loop trail to hike. This is a must-do in Capitol Reef!

The sun finally came out and lit up the canyon, so I made the steep climb to Cohab Canyon and ventured over to both viewpoints. This trail is really fun and leaves you with a couple breathtaking views of the main part of Capitol Reef.

This is a great trail around West Mitten Butte. Its easy to run or hike, and a nice place to stop and stretch out the legs on a road trip into Utah. Not to mention the views are world famous.
