2018 The year of Peak Bagging

As I was training for a big Pacific Crest Trail section hike, I decided to see how many mountains I could get to the top of! The section hike was cancelled because of forest fires, so I continued to climb peaks. I hope to climb even more peaks next year! I have new goals!

My Back Yard – Wildflower Wonderland

Spring is here and the window of opportunity to see wildflowers in the Sierra Foothills is very short. Once the temps start to rise, the wild grasses will quickly die along with the flowers. In just a short time, the land becomes fuel for wildland fires.

The area Rebel and I trekked yesterday is literally in my back yard (just down the road a couple of miles) complete with waterfalls, raging creeks and  wild flowers galore. It’s a feast for the eyes.  If you want to see this show, you better hurry, it won’t last long!
