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...

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...

Silver Peak(s)
Today's prerequisites were very similar like last week's: not too much time and a hike in the Toiyabe National Forest. Today I wanted to make sure to reach my goal(s) and set the expectations way lower than last week: Silver Peak, in fact both peaks from the Noble Creek Trail head. Studying the topo-map and report on summitpost...

Tryon Peak - a little less than what I had planned
I had planned to do a hike & bike combination from Ebbetts Pass to Tryon -, Highland - and Silver Peak, then drop down to Noble Canyon and State Route 4 and ride my bike (which I left there before the hike) back up to Ebbetts Pass. Quite a program for the little time I had today. Well, due to a combination of lack of fitness...

Bull Run Peak via Pacific Valley
Bull Run Peak caught my attention at the shore of Lower Blue Lake at the end of my tour to Deadwood Peak. At the time I had no idea which peak it was, but thanks to the udeuschle website, I was able to figure it out. On this day I actually had different plans to do an easy short hike with a friend. However, when I wanted to pick...

Pyramid Peak revisited
Pyramid Peak was the first peak I visited after moving to California, almost 3 years ago. Looking for some more workout with quite some altitude gain, I decided to go back and pay it another visit. This time I decided to walk up via Rocky Canyon (my way down the last time) and check out the north ridge for my way down and later...

Diese Bäume können über 110 Meter hoch werden und erreichen einen Stammdurchmesser von über 7 Meter. Damit sind sie die höchsten Bäume der Erde. Die meisten der grossen Bäume sind mehrere...
