Dan's Outside

I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…


***September 1, 2006
– Long urban walk to downtown and back.

***September 2, 2006
– Up very early for an early morning hike up Mission Peak. Arrived at trailhead with barely any light. Went to the ridge to the south of the peak to photograph rocks along with spectacular clouds above and fog below.

***September 3, 2006
– Urban walk.

***September 6, 2006
– Urban walk.

***September 7, 2006
– Fast Almaden Quicksilver hike. Up Deep Gulch and Castillero to the Castillero/Mine Hill junction. Then down Mine Hill, across the lateral trail past English Camp, and down Deep Gulch.

***September 9, 2006
– Drove to Yosemite with the intention of backpacking but permits were gone. Hiked out to and beyond Mono Pass.

***September 10, 2006
– After dawn photography at Mono Lake, I backpacked up to Fletcher Lake.

***September 11, 2006
– Day hiked to Vogelsang Pass and then up to the ridge between Fletcher and Parsons Peaks.

***September 12, 2006
– Hiked back down Rafferty Creek to Tuolumne.

***September 16, 2006
– First day of a pack trip along the Sierra Crest between Old Donner Pass and Squaw Valley. Hiked along PCT about 9 miles to a point just north of Tinker Knob. First snow of the season was on the trail from a small front that came through the night before… :-)

***September 17, 2006
– Second day of pack trip. Hiked along PCT to backside of Squaw. Some crossed the ridge at the top of Squaw and others (including me) traversed around the north side of the ridge. Descended to upper lodge.

***September 23, 2006
– Now that school is starting again, getting out on weekdays will be much more difficult! Today I hiked a longish loop at Calero that took me to the top of the rocky hill on the Javelina Loop, from which I walked back via my ridge route.

***September 24, 2006
– Getting a late start, I only had time for a short hike today – out to nearly the reservoir from the north entrance to Quicksilver.

***September 30, 2006
– Fall leaf trip to eastern Sierra. Spent the morning around Carson Pass/Hope Valley. Headed south via Monitor Pass and 395 to end up at Four Jeffrey campground.
