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.

I solo hiked this short loop at around 8:30 in the morning with the temperature at 63 degrees. Its a very nice trail that climbs up through the woods to the loop trail which takes you to the summit. The summit isn't that impressive as the mountain top is more like a forested plateau. The views appear when you hike around to the south side of the summit. There are a lot of little side trails to viewpoints that look down over the surround valley and city of Ashland. The hike came in a 5.5 miles with 980 feet of AEG in 2 hours.

I caught the 9:00 am ferry across the Thomas Edison Lake to the Mono Creek Trail. there were a bunch of PCT thru hikers on the ferry heading north but I was just going to take the trail one way south back to the Goodale Pass Trailhead and over to the Vermillion Campground where my hammock was waiting. This was a pretty hike with a few short climbs that afforded great views of the lake. The hike came in at 5 miles with 760 feet of AEG in 2 hours.

This was a loop hike in the Ansel Adams Wilderness near Thomas Edison Lake which is at the end of the Kaiser Pass Road. Getting there is half the fun. We camped there for a few days and got a couple of day hikes in. This was a loop hike of the Devil's Bathtub, Graveyard Cutoff and Goodale Pass Trails. the creek crossings were challenging due to the high water and we went feet wet a couple of times. The mosquitoes were an issue around the creeks as well. The loop came in at 8.5 miles with 1,160 feet of AEG in 3 hours and 55 minutes. The elevation was at a high of 8,700 feet which played a role in our being so tired at the end.

We got an early 7:05 am start on this trail so as to beat the heat on the exposed switchbacks. It was 46 degrees when we started. I think I counted 32 switchbacks on this climb. It took us an hour and 45 minutes to reach the scenic overlook before heading back down. The views of the Kings Canyon River were awesome. Going down only took an hour. The out and back hike came in at 4.5 miles in 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1,560 feet of AEG.

We headed up the Woods Creek Trail to the Mist Falls which were spectacular! This trail climbed along the South Fork of the Kings River and was very scenic and tree shaded. The trip came in at 8.2 miles with 760 feet of AEG in 3 hours and 20 minutes.

After a morning drive up from Bakersfield we did a quick hike along the river out to Bailey Bridge and back. This trailhead is at the end of highway 180 in the Cedar Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park. We were going to head up the Bubbs Creek trail to the switchbacks but the water level was too high making it difficult to access the bridge crossing. This 4.4 mile hike took 80 minutes with 135 feet of AEG.

We just did an out and back from Snowbowl on the Kachina Trail. The altitude really kicked my butt. I think some of my performance had to do with some new meds I'm taking but I bonked. Just super fatigued and light headed. An hour and 10 minutes out and an hour and 40 minutes back, on a flat trail no less! 5.25 miles with 635 feet of AEG in 2 hours and 55 minutes.

I just went out and back on this trail from the Buck Springs Cabin. I wasn't feeling well so I cut the planned hike short. Just 2.2 miles in an hour and 10 minutes with 500 feet of AEG. And then I broke a front strut on my way back across the rim. FS 300 had some rough spots and I was probably driving too fast.

I headed down from the road trailhead to the beach and back before heading back down to the beach and my hammock. The trail I a mile each way and has about 450 feet of AEG going up but just 50 going down. Very steep in spots with a lot of tree roots hidden under leaves. But it’s in great shape. 3 miles in one hour and 40 minutes with 550 feet of AEG.

Carolyn and I did this hike as a point-to-Point starting at the Reef Bay trailhead and hiking over to the Salt Pond via the Lameshur Bay Trail. It was warm and we were exposed to the sun most of the way, and the last 1.5 miles was down a rough road which wasn’t great. The hike came in at 4.75 miles with 750 feet of AEG in 2 hours and 10 minutes.
