Just an out and back up Mormon and part of Mormon Loop. I wasn’t doing to well today as I didn’t get a good nights sleep. It was a warm 75 when I started despite the trail being in the shade. 3.25 miles in an hour and 40 minutes with 880 feet of AEG.

Carolyn and I did this as an out and back this morning at 7:00. It was 70 degrees when we started and 79 degrees when we finished. But the climb was in the shade so the warmth wasn't a factor. 95 minutes up and 80 minutes down. 7.2 miles in 2 hours and 5 minutes with 1,500 feet of AEG.

I was braking in a new pair of shoes and the fit wasn't quite right. And I was feeling pretty sluggish so I cut this out and back up the Bursera Trail short. 2.7 miles in 70 minutes with 560 feet of AEG. It was 71 degrees when I started at 7:10 and 78 when I finished.

This was a loop of the Javelina, Mormon Loop. National, and Beverly Trails. It was 73 degrees when I started band 77 when I finished which was cooler for this time of year. It had rain hard the night before so the desert smelled nice and the trail wasn't s dusty;. It was a little muggy though. The loop came in at 6.5 miles with 800 feet of AEG in 2.5 hours.

Carolyn and I did this loop of the North Forks trail, to the Swampy Lakes Trail to the Bridge Creek Trail. It was a chilly 39 degrees when we started at 8:30 and 60 degrees when we finished. the North Forks Trail is a picture post card trail with lots of water falls and creek crossings. It's a nice steady climb. Coming back on the Swamp Creek Trail we soon had to cross an unbridged stream relying on fallen logs that were quite slippery. The stream was only knee deep and not moving very fast so it wasn't dangerous but we just didn't want to go feet wet. Carolyn scampered across the logs at the trail while I elected to follow the engineers tape about 50 yards upstream there some larger logs crossed the stream. Neither of us ad any issues. On the way down we got pretty wet from the water logged pine branches closing in on the narrow trail. The 7.4 mile loop came in at 2 hours and 50 minutes with 1,175 feet of AEG.

Carolyn and I did this lollipop loop leaving the Lava Camp Lake Trailhead near the McKenzie Pass. We headed south on the Pacific Crest Trail and took that past South Matthieu Lake a little ways to Scott's Pass. We returned on the North Matthieu Trail past North Matthieu and got back to the trailhead just before the coming rain. It was 45 degrees when we started at 8:00 am and 45 degrees when we finished. The loop came in at 6.0 miles with 850 feet of AEG in 2.25 hours.

Carolyn and I did this hike out from Devils Lake as a loop incorporating the South Sisters Climbers Trail, Moraine Lakes Trail, and the Elk/Devils Lake Trails. The temperature was 45 degrees when we started at 9:00 and 60 degrees when we finished. the initial climb up to the saddle was steep and a really lung buster and took us an hour to get up. We finished the 6.1 mile loop in 2.5 hours with 1,225 feet of AEG.

Carolyn and I intended to do this as a loop utilizing the Metolius Windiago Trail up to Three Creek Lake and back. but we missed the turn and end up doing an out and back to the second creek crossing.The turnoff wasn't well signed and it was somewhat vague, but I still should have spotted it. This hike ended up being in the burn the entire way so it was kind of a bust. It was around 50 degrees and windy so it got a little chilly at times. The hike came in at 7.5 miles in 2.75 hours with 575 feet of AEG.

We took this trail out of the Mosquito Flat Trailhead which is at the end of the Rock Creek Road coming out of Tom's Place near Mammoth Lakes, CA. Parking at the actual trailhead was full so we started from the overflow parking lot .3 miles down the road. This is a popular hike as we got there at 8:45 and the primary parking lot was full and the overflow lots were packed when we left. There's a good reason why this hike is popular... It's awesome!!! One of the best hikes in the area! The trail follows a babbling creek past several lakes between tall snow capped mountains. The trailhead elevation at 10,200 kicked our butts for the first hour or so until we acclimated. And we'd been in the area for the last week too! One first heads up a trail called Mono creek for a mile or so until it forks. Stay left on the Little Lakes Valley Trail to continue up the creek past all of the lakes. We went as far as the last lake, Chicken Foot Lake, which is just before the climb up to Morgan Pass. Our out and back hike came in at 6.9 miles with 750 feet of AEG in 3 hours. The trail was crowded but worth it.

We meant to do this out and back hike starting from the roadside trailhead on Tioga Road which is just .5 miles east of the turnoff for the May Lake Trailhead. Unfortunatley, there was road construction and we missed this pull off and ended up parking at the larger parking area just across the road from the May Lake Trailhead turn off. We got some bad information that the road to the trailhead was closed for paving. (They were just striping the freshly repaved parking lot at the May Lake Trailhead.) Long story short, we hike up the road for 1.7 miles to the May Lake Trailhead and then proceeded to May Lake. On our return trip we took the trail 2.1 miles from the May Lake Trailhead to the Tioga Road and then hiked the road .5 miles back to our car. Hiking the road up was actually pretty nice as it was well shaded and there was no traffic on it as everyone thought it was closed. It is a narrow road and well shaded under the trees. It took us an hour and 10 minutes to get up to the lake and 90 minutes to get back to the car. May Lake is beautiful and you can see why the High Sierra Camp there is so popular. The total hike came in a 7.0 miles with 1,100 fee of AEG in 2 hours and 40 minutes, not including a long stop at the lake. We then enjoyed lunch and beers in our hammocks at Lake Tenaya.

We did this as an out and back from the wilderness permit station at Tuolumne Meadows, down the John Muir Trail the the Rafferty Creek turnoff up to the Vogelsang High Sierra Camp. We just went up the creek for a total of 3.6 miles before stopping for lunch and coming back. I was hoping that the trail would follow the creek and that the creek would be a little larger than it was. The trail paralleled the creek which was really very small. In retrospect, going out and back on the JMT up Lyell Canyon and river would have given more bang for the buck. Our loop came in at 7.3 miles with 730 feet of AEG on 3 hours.

We pushed off from the Devil's Postpile trailhead heading for the Rainbow Falls. The Falls came up in 2.5 miles and were pretty impressive. We continued down to the Lower Falls which was at the 3.2 mile mark. We took a 15 minute break here to grab a quick bite. The last mile of this part of the trip was pretty exposed to the sun as it went through the burn area from the 1992 Rainbow Fire. On the return we took the turnoff to Reds Meadow so as to catch the shuttle bus at stop number 10. This last .7 mile portion was back in the trees and more enjoyable. The entire trek came in at 5.0 miles in 2 hours and 10 minutes with 630 feet of AEG.

This was a solos hike out of the Soda Mountain Trailhead up the PCT. After about a mile a side trail takes you up the hill to Soda Mountain. After a couple of initial switchbacks, the trail intersects a Forest Service Road for the next .75 miles to the lookout tower at the top. Some pretty nice views. On the way back down after rejoining the PCT, I took it east for a ways as this trail winds nicely through the forest with periodic openings with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The hike came in at 5.2 miles with 800 feet of AEG in 2 hours and 5 minutes.

I did this solo hike as an out and back incorporating a few miles of the PCT. I hiked the switchbacks up to the base of Pilot rock at the chute and stopped there. It looked pretty dicey to climb up the chute to the top. I'd started out at 8:00 and the clouds were very low and it was overcast which killed any views. I hiked back down to the PCT and took it north for about a mile where it crossed over a clear saddle. The clouds had cleared somewhat at this point and I could view Pilot Rock and the valley below to the south. I headed back south on the PCT past the turn off for Pilot Rock and then doubled back. The hike came in at 5.2 miles with 1,300 feet of AEG in 2 hours and 10 minutes.
