Sierra Nevada Mountains, California
On planning another hike to the top of Mt. Whitney, I realized the pain from the last time I walked up there had finally subsided. That was in 1993. I wasn't in shape for it, but made it nonetheless. Being partial to the Owens Valley and the Eastern Sierra, some of my favorite entry points, south to north, are Cottonwood Lakes for the Golden Trout Wilderness, Onion Valley and Rock Creek for the John Muir Wilderness, and Mammoth Lakes for the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Out of Mammoth Lakes basin, there are many enjoyable hikes to be had. A little further north, I've hiked some in the Hoover Wilderness. To the right you'll find links to journals I kept on some of these hikes.
