Four day trip from Sierra City to Mount Lola and back mostly along the PCT. Absolutely gorgeous scenery as well as meeting some nice folks. Nice July 4th weekend, wished I could have stayed out there!

Classic Avalanche Gulch route up Mount Shasta from Bunny Flat TH. Split into two days with an overnight at Helen Lake @ ~10,400 on Saturday before continuing to the summit on Sunday and then returning to the car. Saturday made the 4.2 miles to Helen Lake in about 3 hours. Sunday completed the climb to the summit in a little over 5 hours with an additional 6 hours to climb back down to Helen Lake, pack up the tent and return to the trail head. Overall a very nice first 14,000 footer experience (and solo at that!). It was perfect weather both days and not too windy. Still good snow pack. Good glissade conditions on the way back down too from the Red Banks all the way to Helen Lake and beyond.

Snowshoe up Lassen Peak in Lassen National Park. Started early for the snowshoe from the visitor center north along un-plowed CA89 to the Lassen Peak trail head with a few cross country short cuts (most notably around Diamond Peak). Then the real fun began with the trip up Lassen with crampons and ice ax rewarded with a fun glissade back down the slope :).

Trail ran a loop starting on the trail leading from the bridge by the old Spencerville mine location to the Falls. The trail was easy to follow and ran more or less along 'Dry Creek' (which was anything but dry!). I then continued to make a loop on various other unmarked trails and a service road or two before finding my way back to the bridge. I was a good Sunday (2015-01-11) afternoon run. The falls were a nice two tiered affair. I saw some good swimming pools for warmer months.

A wonderful three day adventure in the Sierra Ancha with my friend Alex. It was nice to be back!

Day 1: We parked at Devils Chasm about 9:30 AM and began the hike heading north for a couple miles along Cherry Creek Road until arriving at Lucky Strike Trail (#144). After a few hundred yards the trail became undefined and we ended up bush whacking north until hitting a fence which we followed back to a gate and the trail. After that no further problems, just the steady gain towards Center Mountain. We made a short exploratory foray down towards Lucky Strike mine. From this point the continued on Center Mountain Trail (#142) and made camp a half mile or so down after the summit. Offered sweeping views in most directions. Had a good time exploring the cliff face and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors off in the direction of Aztec Peak. Made camp a little after 4:00 PM. Some good Brats and S'mores!

Day 2: Broke camp around 9:00 AM after a breakfast of Pancakes and Bacon (bacon!). And headed towards Aztec by way of Trail #150 with a stop at Knoles Hole to top off on water. The forest was in full fall swing! Eventually we made our way along the Rim Trail (#139), breathtaking views of the Cherry Creek Canyons from above as well as spotting a bear! We made camp a short way along Moody Point Trail (#140) about 4:30 PM.

Day 3: Continued along Moody Point Trail about 9:30. This was by far the most difficult part of the trip as after the first two miles or so the path is little more than cairns and route finding is a must. It did have nice views most of the way down as well as several random finds (some old horse shoes, several rusted discarded spools of barbed wire, etc) and a cliff dwelling about 2 1/2 miles from Cherry Creek.

Beautiful day in the Catalina's. Followed the path set forth in the description. Don't think it was quite as difficult as it sounded though :)
