Tough day climbing today due to the Carson’s Pass Fire... zero views down the valley!
Thursday night headed west over Carson Pass. Smoke from a prescribed burn turned Wild Fire catching the sun set.
I feel weirdly ready/excited for this season of snow and ice after a super short rock season. What is happening to me?!? North Peak or Dana couloir next week, anyone? #iceclimbing #winter #girlswhoclimb

Day 2: Ski season off to a rad start. Chased Sierra dog up to 10k feet and scored a few sketch runs. Cause you only live twice, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ #love #life #ski #earnyourturns #adventure #explore #home #dog #dogsofinstagram #sierra #cattledog
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

Round Top from the PCT heading south out of Meiss Meadow. Winter is coming!
Gatsby’s First Hike ๐Ÿ•
The illusive (to me) true summit of Round Top. But hey, finally made it to the summit ridge and that was an pretty sweet view even without those last 40’. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

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.
The visitor information โ„น๏ธ centre at Carson Pass is a great place to see the history of the area. Carson Pass was one of the routes taken by early settlers when pushing through to the west coast. It’s nice going on foot now but would have been a serious undertaking in wagons loaded with all your possessions. I also admire the patriotism displayed at these places, flag flying proudly. As kiwis we are getting better but could learn a thing or two here. Onward now into the Mokelumne Wilderness, Eldorado National Forest. . . . . . . . #hiking #hikertrash #hikerlife #hikingholiday #hikemore #hikingadventures #highsierra #hikingcalifornia #californiahiking #getoutside #betterthanwork #beatsworking #carsonpass #eldoradonationalforest #mokelumnewilderness #toiyabenationalforest #patriotism #pcttahoe #pctcalifornia #pctsectionhike #sectionhike #hikingtrail #hikingtravel #travelphotography #proudkiwi

Yet another lake that blows us away for beauty. I think the peak in the back is Roundtop.

Welcome to the Sierra Nevada
sean.mcateer
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

8,900 feet up! Highest I’ve ever been on the ground!
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. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ
julie and eddie, and that golden mountain light โœจ โœจ currently experiencing the complete opposite watching snow fall in big sky, montana! ๐Ÿ˜ณโ„๏ธ 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
October 1st, Still Fresh Powder On The Ground. Rock Slides, Rail Slides, And Questionable Gaps. I Love Early EARLY Season Skiing.... But I Should Calm Down A Little Before THE ACTUAL Season๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ Honestly Thought I Was Breaking My Leg On That Rock @on3pskico #on3p

The September pow streak continues.  Hunted for the best snow all up and down 395 but ended up right back in the back yard.  Not as deep as #powontheprow last September but wind-loaded DFs rode pretty damn good yesterday.  One of these days I’m actually gonna kill that ratty rock board for good.  Maybe by then @jonessnowboards will hook me up with a board I can afford to trash riding all summer.  Who wants to come along on the October mission.  #day69 #month35 #gameon #welcomebackwinter #turnsallyear #12monthsofshred #backcountryskiing #splitboarding #tahoe won this time #easternsierra #summer #pow
Last day of the season was a pow day. I rode snow every month from Oct 2018  to Sept 2019z Never thought I’d say that at the end of Sept. #septemberturns #powtown #soulsurftheearth #endlesswinter

There is so much on the top. You just have to sustain the gusty wind, rain, snow, altitude difficulties and finally push physical limits. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #bealpha #sonyalpha #alphagang . . . . . . . . . . . #landscapes #lakes #roundtop #carsonpass #pacificcresttrail #winnemucca #snow #calilove #kirkwood #weekend #hiking #friends #altitude #sonyimages #agameoftones #roadtrip #camping #mountains #sierranevada #forests #eldoradonationalforest #laketahoe #californian #fallcolors #instadaily #instanature #naturelover
