Bob Burd's Sierra Travels

Last Updated: Tue Oct 21 11:44:28 2014

While I still favor the Sierra Nevada, I can no longer claim to only stray now and then. I'm running out of the higher peaks in the Sierra, so I end up rambling about other parts of California as well as nearby states. If you're interested in a particular peak, they are listed in chronological order below, but not all peak names appear if you try to do a search. There is an alphabetized list below that has all of the peaks listed, just select the letter of interest. Almost all of my hiking/scrambling/climbing involves dayhikes of varying durations, some more than 20hrs in length. This is all part of a somewhat haphazard effort to show that any peak in California can be dayhiked given enough determination. That, and I happen to like hiking - a lot. :-)

Yes, Bob was wearing one. Tommey didn't have one as Squaretop wasn't his original goal. Turns out that our route was fairly solid so there really wasn't a need for helmets.
