My First Peak and That Obscure Feeling

Mt Talamitam

Whanganui to Mount Lees Reserve. Roads, roads, roads.

I take my time this morning. Tea, yoghurt with banana, coffee, tomatoe with feta. At 9am I say goodbye to Liz who is going to New Plymouth today to visit a friend. 718 more words

San Diego Trans-County Trail Gear List.

I’m starting my thru hike of the San Diego Trans-County Trail on Tuesday!

This trail is about 155 miles long and goes from the the Salton Sea in Southern California, through the Anza-Borrego Desert, into the actual city of San Diego and ends at the Pacific Ocean near Torrey Pines. 422 more words

Ribbon Creek

Ribbon Creek is a 20 KM Hike in Kananaskis Country, Alberta.  I have chosen “Moderately Challenging” mostly due to length.   At about the point where I was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to find the end I happened to come across a couple that had spent the night at the backcountry campground who was kind enough to tell me that I only had “about ten minutes more”   A large portion of this trail follows ribbon creek on an incline that is so gradual you barely feel it.   212 more words
