Mount San Gorgonio’s Vivian Creek trail is one of the most epic day hikes that you can do with your dog in California, so it has been on our list for awhile. The opportunity finally arose last weekend and we had a blast checking out a new part of California.
Callie and I finished our fall color trip at another classic eastern Sierra spot. Convict Lake never disappoints.
Lundy Canyon is yet another spectacular fall hike in the eastern Sierra. Callie and I were fortunate to hit the trail on a beautiful day when the foliage was peaking.
Every year around the end of September, foliage in the Eastern Sierra begins to turn color to signal the change in season. For a brief couple of weeks, the Sierra crest lights up with brilliant hues of red, orange, and yellow as Aspen groves transition towards fall. It is one of the most dazzling displays of nature found on the West Coast. Furthermore, the fact that this amazing explosion of seasonal color occurs in California, which is traditionally devoid of these types of scenes, makes the occasion even more special.
Want to hike Mount Whitney but can’t get a permit? Take the trail up to Lone Pine Lake for a taste of what it is like to hike up California’s highest peak.
The Chain Lakes in the southwestern area of Yosemite National Park is an easy place to achieve some solitude in one of America’s busiest parks.
It snowed in our local foothills this weekend and Callie was on the scene to investigate.
