Pick me up at the Negro Bar
What sounds like a politically incorrect statement is what I told my wife the other day: "Can you pick me up at the Negro Bar?" However, I didn't go out to have a drink in a bar, but asked her to pick me up at the "Negro Bar" State Park, after I walked there from home. "Negro Bar" is the site which was mined by African...

Phipps Peak - A nice snowshoe & hike roundtrip from Emerald Bay
California's weather is currently influenced by a so-called "blocking high" off the Atlantic coast which brought us nice warm and sunny T-Shirt days down in the valley for almost all of December so far (and it doesn't look like it will change any time soon). Unfortunately this prevents the winter storms from rolling in and the...

Sun Rock - Stopgap in the Desolation Wilderness
Recently I discovered that the 4 peaks of the extended Crystal Range north of Rockbound Pass (Red -, Silver -, McConnel - and Tells Peak) have a relatively short access from west. The so-called "Ice House Road" from Kyburz to Loon Lake is a regular asphalt road and supposedly plowed all winter long too. The minor single lane...

Round Top: Normal Route from Carson Pass
Quick trip to the Sierra to check out the snow situation at Round Top. I should have brought my skis along, because there was more than plenty of the white stuff. Walked from Carson Pass to Winnemucca Lake to the saddle between The Sisters and Round Top and then via west ridge (snow free) to the top. Back the same way. (For...

Oops, I did it again
After last weeks outing to Flagstaff Hill, I actually didn't think I would go back to this mountain (ever) again, because there wasn't really much which was extremely attractive for a mountaineer like me. However, I kind of had to, because I lost something precious up there (most likely during the bushwhacking up to the summit)....

Flagstaff Hill - A hike along the South Fork of the American River on Folsom Lake
Fall has arrived in California and with it the first winter storms. My plans for the Sierra Nevada were cancelled the night before due to extensive snowfall in the Tahoe area. As an alternative I planned to visit Flagstaff Hill, a mountain on Folsom Lake which should give me a rather good view of the Lake and the surrounding area....

Anderson Peak from Donner Pass
Anderson Peak is one of the few mountain tops in the Tahoe area which haven't received a visit from me yet, even though I tried twice already. The first time, I failed due the icy steep north face and not carrying crampons with me and the second time I ran out of time due to an unplanned detour. This time I was rather sure I would...

Oahu: Diamond Head (Le'ahi) Summit Trail
Letzter Hikr-Eintrag aus unseren Hawaii-Ferien Für diesen Trail bräuchte es eigentlich keinen Beschrieb. Diese "Tour" oder "Ausflug zu einem Wahrzeichen von Honolulu" ist geschichtsträchtig und vielseitig beschrieben. Als Abschluss unserer Hawaii-Ferien eignet er sich jedoch sehr gut - das Stängeli (10 Touren) ist somit...

Waimea Canyon im Kokee State Park / malerischer Canyon mit dem Beinamen "Grand Canyon des Pazifiks Der Waimea Canyon an Kauais West Sidewird auch „Grand Canyon des Pazifik“ genannt.
