Trip Reports

First 24 Hours in Yosemite

I flew into Fresno so we could stock up on supplies at the Grocery Outlet before driving back towards the valley. A drive he had done several times, since he started doing van life a few months prior. Given that the experience was new to me, I didn’t know which corner we rounded would reveal that iconic valley view of El Capitan and Half Dome, as he waited with baited breathe in anticipation of my reaction.

Trip Planning: Coastal Kayaking

I recently went on a weekend kayaking fishing trip down in Rockport on the Texas coast and while we weren’t successful in catching any keepers, I feel like we arrived at a productive planning strategy for future trips. We chose Goose Island State Park since we were already familiar with the area and we could stay right on the water.

Trip Report: Devil's Dome Loop

Devil’s Dome Loop is located in the Pasayten Wilderness which overlaps with the North Cascades National Park. We started on our hike September 18th at the Canyon Creek Trailhead right off Highway 20, which has a large gravel lot for parking, an outhouse, and a stream flowing beside it. To park at the trailhead requires a Northwest Forest Pass, although other passes may also be valid.
