Mount Gleason and Summit 6,020′
Back in the LA Basin after our first stint on the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada, I activate two summits on a hot morning to stay in shape.
By far the most challenging SOTA activation to date is part of a five day backpack trip kicking off our attempt of the entire John Muir Trail
A warm-up hike for the John Muir Trail leads me to activate summit 9,691′ for the first time
Mount San Antonio
On the Fourth of July Weekend my old climbing buddy, Greg Jones and I get in a bodacious conditioning run up a steep trail before joining the old crew on the John Muir Trail next week.
After 32 years I return to activate the highest mountain in New Mexico
Another extremely enjoyable trip to the rim of the formidable Valles Caldera super volcano.
Cassie (KG6MZR) and I return to New Mexico for the first time in years and activate our first summit in the Land of Enchantment
My first 10 point summit and my first summit outside of California.
1821 Westlake 2
The view went from intensely colorful to perfectly colorless on this “May Gray” visit to 1,821′
