    My Journey

    I decided to leave the dogs in the truck while visiting here, I wanted to enjoy this one on my own..... Again in Nepal, now nearly a decade ago, I was so fascinated by the stone.....it's always the same..... The wind ripped right through me that day.....and there was no way of...

    Ace.....not that I'm any expert but I'll bet the number was way higher..... ITTOG.....that would be an awesome backyard ! You must miss it quite a bit. That being said, that gator doesn't look real dog friendly so it wouldn't work for me..... When I had exited the interstate that morning...

    My Journey

    We never did see those white birds here.....but we did see tons of migrating birds..... I'm fairly certain that it was the Sandhill Cranes that we mostly saw here.....but there were plenty of other waterfowl.....I don't even hazard a guess as to their names..... We spent an entire...

    Ace.....no..... Dougnuts.....not sure..... Four days of city life turned out to be plenty for me, so I decided to return to the life of silence & solitude. We returned to the interstate and we drove south, now looking for that massive flock of white birds that I had mentioned in an earlier...

    It was cold that day and the wind was whipping right through that Jeep..... We were somewhat prepared but somewhat wasn't quite good enough.....by the time we reached that summit, well, I was already ready to go back down..... There was a lot of snow up there..... The...

    My Journey

    The real beauty of this highway is it's crossing of the Black Range Mountains..... One thing that you might have noticed in my pictures is the sheer number of warning signs for hairpin turns.....it's endemic of this road..... The road passed through a stunningly beautiful canyon, then...

    My Journey

    Ace.....I've been struggling through Blue Highways..... After our somewhat lengthy stay at the Santa Anita Mountains, we finally decided to move on.....onto Interstate 10 headed east..... And like most readers here, I too dislike the interstate, so we eventually left the interstate behind...

    My Journey

    And somtimes we actually rested.....sometimes not moving can be a good thing. While I never got out the lawn chair here.....I did relax a bit..... The sunsets were mostly spectacular during our stay here.....the weather was good.....the clouds passing from the west to the east were...

    My Journey

    During our stay at Madera Canyon, I most enjoyed climbing the peaks but that's not the only thing that we did here. On non climbing days we could be found walking along the Forest Service roads..... .....or riding around in the Jeep.....not four wheeling mind you.....riding on well maintained...

    My Journey

    This would be our second attempt at Mount Wrightson (9,456') and my thinking here was that if I'm coming at it from a different direction, and with the few days of extraordinarily warm weather that we'd just had, that maybe it could still be summitted..... We came across a signpost for...

    My Journey

    JD.....they are indeed the best of buds..... We spent an entire week camped in the Coronado National Forest so of course there's one more "epic climb" that we did while we were camped here. Both of our "epic climbs" exceeded 4,000' of elevation gain and both of our "epic climbs" were in the...

    My Journey

    .....and the north slope sees little sun.....just enough to melt the surface during the day and to refreeze each and every night..... Now I was really struggling to see a mountain ahead of us within the distance that the AllTrails ap seemed to indicate. We passed this huge...

    My Journey

    For our first summit of the day, we departed the well groomed trail and began a bushwack up the mountain..... I believe there was about 300 feet of elevation gain from the trail to that summit.....lots of snow along that unmarked route..... Eventually we got our first summit of the...

    My Journey

    We drove through Saguaro National Park, then into Tucson, Arizona to load up with supplies and grab the all important hot shower. Then it was onto the interstate, continued driving south, eventually ending up in the Coronado National Forest where we set up our next long term camp.....the...

    Clouds began to roll in later that afternoon and a substantial rain was in the forecast......so we needed to find a campsite along our new planned route to hole up for a few days.....we ended up camping in the Ironwood Forest National Monument..... Due to the amount of rain in the upcoming...

    PNWY.....it sure did. That fire took most everything in that camper except for some books and my cherished 2004 Road Atlas.....sure am thankful for that..... Riversdad.....that place was a zoo. I've been there before and maybe I just don't remember how bad it was then, therefore I returned...

    My Journey

    That night I realized that I hadn't brought my passport along so I quickly deleted Mexico from our travel itinerary.....so here we were camped at the base of Signal Peak (4,877') , the mountain where Tanner had his near fatal fall 4 years prior..... At this point I knew for sure that we were...
