It’s that time of year again (mind you a bit sooner than planned) that Spring has started to make itself known, and the snow (what little we’ve had this year) is melting away – meaning I’m beginning to dream about the backpacking season!!
With a baby on the way and a full season of weddings in the books – I’m trying to figure out ways to sneak away for a night or two high in the Sierra.
Hopefully there will be less snow than we saw in this 2005 trip through the John Muir Trail:
Sometimes it pays to have a sign that reads “nice guys” when hitch hiking home from the middle of nowhere. If I could do it, I’d send our driver a Gift Basket as a thank you for the hours on the road driving us all the way home!
So, what adventures do you have planned for 2015?? Anyone want to join me for a quick trip through the JMT? I’m thinking 7 days should do it if we push it hard enough.
