From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

High Sierra

October 12th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Dale, Karen and I got back yesterday from a 4-day, 45-mile hike in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California, in Kings Canyon National Park.

It is essentially the same hike that Devon, Derek and I took in 2003, with a few differences.

It was a difficult, exhausting and exhilarating adventure. Dale had a minor battle with altitude sickness, and both he and I were nursing non-optimal knees, but the views from the heights made it worthwhile. Karen seemed to be dancing up the hills, spending half her time waiting for Dale and I, but she admits that she was exhausted too.

Keep watching Dale’s blog for a more detailed description with pictures, in the near future.

    Really looking forward to pictures.

    I so wish you folks had come through LA earlier so I could have met up but I’ll see everyone again soon.

    I want to go backpacking. Can’t wait to see the pictures. Glad you’re home safe and sound with great memories.
