Round Top via Crescent Moon Couloir
If I had to name "my favorite peak" in my new home, it would have to be Round Top. Not only because I have been on top of it 3 times already, but also because it offers quite a few interesting routes, in summer and winter and with it's >10000ft altitude a very nice view as well. One of the little more adventurous routes to the...

Twin Sisters (North) - Do not repeat this hike or you might end up in jail!
I actually wanted to do another ski tour on this day, but the weather forecast predicted snow fall for the Sierra Nevada over night and cloudy skies until noon. Therefore, I decided to do something in a coastal mountain range instead, where the weather was supposed to be very sunny. I didn't have much time to prepare a hike and...

Sacramento Bar Park / American River Parkway - Hike, Bike, Swim, Float and its Fauna & Flora
My current "extended back-yard" is the American River in Fair Oaks. The so-called Sacramento Bar Park is one of many parks which all together form the American River Parkway, Sacramento Region’s great recreational asset. The American River Parkway also includes a wonderful bike path along the Lower American River, from...

Mauna Kea (4205 m)
Tra i tanti bischeri che vanno alle Hawaii, solo in pochi si rendono conto che è uno dei pochi posti sulla Terra dove puoi andare dal livello del mare a più di 4000 m in una manciata di km. Questo bischero invece lo sapeva, ed erano più di 10 anni che aspettava una scusa per tornarci. Mauna Kea è il punto più alto...

Mauna Kea (13,802 ft)
Out of all of the dorks who travel to Hawaii, only a few realize that it's one of the few places where you can go from sea level to over 13,000 feet in under 50 miles. This dork knew that, and he waited to go back for over a decade. Mauna Kea is the high point of the whole archipelago and of the eponymous island, a.k.a. the Big...

Jacumba Hot Springs / Jacumba Peak
Jacumba is a small town right at the US/Mexican border, about 60 miles east of San Diego. It's known for the sulfur containing hot springs, which were most likely already used by the Kumeyaay people. The commercialization of the hot springs began in the early 20th century. In 1919 rail service connected Jacumba to San Diego and 6...

Mount Soledad 251 m
Der Mount Soledad ist eine langestreckte Erhebung an der Küste nahe San Diego CA, welcher von einem riesigen Kreuz gekrönt wird. Um dieses Kreuz als christliches Symbol gab es langwierige Diskussionen samt Gerichtsverfahren, die erst nach Aufkauf der Liegenschaft um das Kreuz beendet werden konnten; siehe dazu den entsprechende...

Avalanche Peak (3221 m) - Bergsteigen im Yellowstone Nationalpark
Yellowstone Nationalpark - dieser Begriff steht eigentlich für unendliche Wälder, blubbernde Geysire, Bisonherden und Bären. An seinem östlichen Rand erhebt sich aber die Absaroka Range, eine durchaus bemerkenswerte Berglandschaft mit Dreitausendern. Mit am besten erreichbar ist der Avalanche Peak, dem unser heutiges Interesse...

Highland Peak - pretty high land up there!
What's special about 10935 feet? Nothing really, except if you convert it to meters, you end up with the "pretty number" 3333. Well that's the height of Highland Peak, my goal for the day. This peak also has a pretty high prominence of 2456 ft, so the view up there is expected to be quite impressive. One more time, the...

Rendezvous Mountain (3170 m) - unterwegs in der südlichen Teton Range
Wir sind unterwegs im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Wyoming - zuerst wandern wir in der sehr alpinen Teton Range umher, danach steht der Yellowstone Nationalpark auf dem Programm. Bergziele gibt es in der Teton Range zuhauf - immerhin ist der Höchste in der Gegend, der Grand Teton, ein stolzes Horn von knapp 4200 m Höhe, dessen...
