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)!...

Snow up to my chin - Jakes Peak?
According to several sources Jakes Peak (or grammatically correct: Jake's Peak) is one of the most popular back country ski destinations in the Tahoe area. With its corner position at the north end of Emerald Bay it offers fabulous views of Lake Tahoe in general and Emerald Bay in particular. With the many many feet of snow this...

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 Pluto - Ski Season Opener
The Sierra Nevada got quite some early snow this season and I was eager to get out there after yet another month without serious mountain activities. My tour today only makes sense if the Northstar ski resort hasn't fully opened all their slopes and lifts yet. The otherwise very crowded ski area and groomed slopes would most...

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...
