An attempt to climb Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. And learning an important lesson: what counts in the end is making it back alive.
I explored the state’s deep south this time. Which, in California, means the desert landscape of Joshua Tree National Park.
What happens when you decide to take a trail on a hike that is not really a trail? A regular hike turns into an epic adventure through the wilderness.
I enjoyed my first trip with REI so much, that I decided to go for another one. This time, my sense for adventure took me to Colorado and the Rocky Mountain National Park for two nights of backpacking.
Longing for the next adventure, this time I found myself about five hours north of San Francisco, as part of an eight person group attempting to summit the fifth highest summit in California.
