Great hike at top of Carson Pass to Frog Lake! Dog friendly and easy 3 mile round trip to the lake. On the PCT if you want to make a longer hike out of it. Lots of snow on the high peaks and patches on the trail as well! Early snow bodes well for fire season! #rudiontheroad#carsonpasstrail#froglake#sweethikingtrail
Driving home from Candy Dance (Genoa, Nv) over 8000' via Kit Carson Pass. For generations, locals and visitors alike have flocked to Nevada’s oldest permanent settlement, for the Annual Candy Dance! The event originated with a humble and simple need…street lights. Yes, street lights. In 1919, the town needed to raise money to purchase and install the lights. Prominent Genoa resident Lillian Virgin Finnegan developed the idea to host a dance, and pass out homemade candy, as a fundraiser and the first Genoa Candy Dance was born. The event draws about 50,000 visitors. & is always held the last full weekend of September.
Last weekend the first storm of the season hit the Sierra with cold temperatures, wind, and snow. A few of us late season SOBOs held off starting out of South Lake Tahoe until after the first wave of the storm on Saturday had passed. We began on Sunday morning, braving the small probability of additional snow and cold temperatures. But the snow dumped on us Sunday night and Monday as we headed into the high Sierra. Post-holing, 50 MPH winds and low temperatures are definitely type-2 fun, but they spice up the hike. Today we got to Kennedy Meadows North and it’s good to have some warmth after the last few days. The landscapes made up for it with the snow accentuating an already beautiful environment. Thanks, PCT! #pacificcresttrail#pacificcresttrail2019#pctsobo#pctsobo2019
We headed out excitied to begin the Sierras Mountains just a few days ago. Little did we know we would be breaking trial in 6 inches of snow and dealing with 20 below nights (that’s nothing compared to what others been through) . Although it could of been very doable to push on. We were not ready too fight through those cold nights/mornings. It was not an easy decision and there were some tears , but we decided to skip the sierras and head to the desert. Leaving us about 700ish miles to go. It’s funny how this trail can break you in many ways. The weather and injury being the biggest factors, which we have dealt with both, but not enough for us to call it quits on the entire trail. We got a bottle of champagne ready to shower all over the Mexican boarder. 🍾🇲🇽
julie and eddie, and that golden mountain light ✨ ✨ currently experiencing the complete opposite watching snow fall in big sky, montana! 😳❄️ the early snow makes me happy thinking that soon enough the spot in this picture will be covered in winters blanket and it will be time to bust out the skis!! #winteriscoming
