Dieser befindet sich ca. 15 km östlich von Waikiki. Der Pfad steigt zu Anfang gemäßigt an, läuft komplett durch den Wald und ist mit zahlreichen...

Old Man Mountain - exploring the "Tunnel" on a very long but interesting hike
After I looked at Old Man Mountain on the US topo map, I was wondering why there was a "Tunnel" clearly indicated as such in its south flank at an altitude of approximately 6700 ft. After doing some research and asking a friend, all I found out was that it probably is connected to the former mining activity at the Carlisle Mine at...

Squaw Peak, Emigrant Crag and Granite Chief - probably my last ski tour of the 2013/14 season
Last weekend the Sierra Nevada got about 8 inches of fresh snow and even though the past winter had only way below average snow, I fancied doing another ski tour before the snow definitely melts. As my goals I chose a few peaks in the vicinity of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort (which is closed for the season). The fact that the...

Thimble Peak - A True Sierra Gem
On my tour to Thunder Mountain at the beginning of January, I peeked over to Thimble Peak and noted it as an interesting project in this area. After reading up on it on summitpost and Bob Burd's page, I knew that getting to it's highest point wouldn't be easy. After Thimble Peak I also planned to visit the Covered Wagon Peak...

Hawkins and Pickett Peak - There's still some snow left in California's Sierra
On my hike to Pyramid Peak (my first Sierra hike after moving to California last October) I noticed an interesting looking mountain in direction southeast which looked like a volcanic peak. I asked the person who was on the summit of Pyramid Peak together with me what the name of that mountain was, but he could not tell me. After...

Im Lochschnee versinken - die Entdeckung des rojosuiza-Sattels
Lochschnee? - Was ist Lochschnee? Lochschnee ist Schnee, der nicht trägt; mal steht rojosuiza beim Schritt oben drauf, mal sinkt er ein bis zum Knie, bis zu der Hüfte; und manchmal steht er ganz unten, mit beiden beiden Beinen tief im Loch... Daher der Name Lochschnee. Lochschnee bietet sich rojosuiza überall auf dieser...

Ausserirdische geben Heisse Wasser
Eine Wanderung ist's nicht geworden. Ein Spaziergang auch nicht. Zur Wanderung fehlte der Abstand, denn vom Ort Bridgeport zu den Thermalquellen von Travertine sind's vielleicht zwei Kilometerchen... Ein Spaziergang auch nicht, denn zum Hinmarsch habe ich mich für barfuss entschieden - was entschieden Vorteile in nassem...

Hidden Falls Regional Park - lots of blooming flowers and wonderful wildlife
Hidden Falls Regional Park is a popular local recreation area. It offers 30 miles of natural surface trails suitable for hiking, running, biking and horseback riding. I explored about a third of the trails on this rainy day in Northern California and saw lots of beautiful flowers and wildlife. The Park Map at the parking lot shows...

Mount Tallac, a classic ski tour in the Tahoe area - I encountered some obstacles
Mount Tallac is a favorite destination for Tahoe’s backcountry ski crowd and it's also popular with boarders. According to some sources it's actually rated one of the "top 10" backcountry skiing destinations in the US. My plan to get to the top via N-Ridge (which used to be the standard) and ski down the NE bowl had to be...

Tamarack Peak, Mount Houghton and Relay Peak - Peak Bagging in Nevada's Sierra
My original plan for this day was to do a ski or snowshoe tour up to Mount Rose. This mountain is very close to the California - Nevada border and relatively easy to get to from the Mount Rose Summit, the pass on Highway 431 between Reno and Tahoe. The goal was to first climb Tamarack Peak and via it's northern hour-glass-bowl get...
