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...

Thompson Peak - an unplanned but wonderful ski tour
On this day I had a clear goal: to get a good workout with as much altimeter gain as possible. In the Tahoe area Freel Peak with is 10883 ft is one of the highest peaks and if you start somewhere around lake level (for example at the end of High Meadows Tail in Meyers (same as here), you get a good 4000 ft climb. So much for the...

Maggies Peaks - Closed for the Season? No way!
Maggie's South Peak is a very popular hiking destinations in the Tahoe area. It is an easy marked path from Inspiration Point (a view point at Emerald Bay) to the top. During the summer months hundreds if not thousands of people visit this peak every year which offers a nice view to Lake Tahoe. During the winter, the peak is in...

Rose Knob Peak - Not your average mid April day in California*
The precipitation of the storm on the days before this tour shattered the all-time high of the wettest water year on record in the Northern Sierra Nevada. The new record is now at 89.7 inches of water (2.24 m)... and growing & the current snow pack is about twice of the historic average! For my tour toady, I actually had...

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...

Jakes Peak? Jakes Peak! Well still not quite on the very top...
Since I missed the true summit of Jakes Peak here, I wanted to go back and give it another try. This time I was aware and conscious of where to "find" the true summit. However, the very top of Jakes Peak remains unvisited by 360, this time I didn't quite succeed, because the technical difficulties for the last few meters to the...

Snow "ad nauseam": Peter Grubb Hut, Basin and Andesite Peak
By now you've probably heard or read that California's Sierra Nevada got a lot of snow this winter. The Squaw Valley ski resort officials already decided that their ski lifts will stay open until the Fourth of July weekend. No wonder, because their cumulative total snow fall this season currently is at 623 inches (15.8 meters)!...
