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...

Im Schutzgebiet kann man besonders gut wandern, zelten oder die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt beobachten. Der grösste Teil des Schutzgebietes besteht aus einer dreieckigen Halbinsel, die weit in den Pazifik ragt. An der Spitze des...

Yosemite National Park
Wer einmal im Yosemite National Park war, der will immer wieder zurück. So ging es auch mir. Wie beim letzten Mal reisten wir über den Tioga Pass an, eine Strasse die nur in den Sommermonaten geöffnet ist. Nur schon die Fahrt den Tioga Pass hoch ist eine Reise Wert. An Bergen und Seen geht es vorbei bis zum Pass auf über...

Freel Peak and Jobs Sister
I wanted to find out how much my rather unacceptable fitness level improved in the last few weeks and didn't have much time to prepare some "fancy hike". Therefore, I decided to do a variation of a hike I have done before. Climbing Freel Peak from Horse Meadow make an altitude gain of about 2500 ft and I should get an idea how...

Twin Peaks - A prime viewpoint in San Francisco
There are quite a few mountains called "Twin Peaks" in the US, but the "double hill" in San Francisco is most likely the one which is known best. It is located near the geographic center of SF and offers spectacular views over the city, the many bridges, the Bay and the Pacific ocean. The hike up to the tops is very short because...
