When one day isn't enough, backpacking is the answer. Multiple days and nights in the wilderness. The more remote and fewer humans the better. Complete solitude. It doesn't get any better than that.

Cottonwood Lakes

A short, but epic, backpacking trip with Aidan in the Cottonwood Lakes region of the Eastern Sierra. 15 miles over two days. Aidan's first campfire, first time in a tent, first time in the snow, and lots of first animal sightings. Definitely a great adventure!

Three Sisters Loop

50 miles in 4 days, 2 with Dr. Rock and 2 solo, around the Three Sisters Loop in Central Oregon. Volcanoes, glacier capped peaks, and some serious dehydration made for another great adventure. Combined with an excellent side trip to Crater Lake National Park.

Rae Lakes Loop

5 days and 4 nights with Dustin around the famous Rae Lakes Loop in Kings Canyon National Park. Almost 50 miles filled with everything from bears and snakes to lakes, near hypothermia, and a wind blasted Glen Pass at nearly 12,000'.

Jack Main Canyon

4 days and 3 nights with my Dad in the Jack Main Canyon area of Yosemite National Park near Hetch Hetchy. 40 miles of epic lakes, meadows, and glacier carved valleys. Two of the days without seeing a single human. Try finding that anywhere else in Yosemite!
