After surviving a snowstorm, I woke up to a white blanket of snow across the landscape. Looks like I will be blazing the trail to Whitney!
Some thoughts after completing the Appalachian Trail in September, 2023 after hiking it in sections since 2019!
Am I going to die today? That's not a thought I ever think will cross my mind on a backpacking trip, but it sure did cross my mind today.
The storm is coming and I'm left to decide, should I make a run for it to the next campsite, or should I wait it out here? Yep, I'm going!
Forester Pass kicked my ass, and I said thank you Sir, may I have another... so he gave me rain and snow. Note to self: Keep your mouth shut!
Here we go! Today I'm heading back to the trail after a week long break. There's a storm coming, so hopefully I beat it. Spoiler... I don't.
After almost a week and a half off for a funeral, I'm finally getting back out on the trail! The mountains are calling and I must go!
Sleeping in, eating hot food, showers, laundry, and reading on the shores of Lake Edison. Today is all about R&R at VVR!
No one will see your shiny hiney when you use nature's prickly bathroom off the trail.
I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to day 6 on the trail. It was a long day, but with a light at the end. VVR here...
