Bob Burd's California Travels

Last Updated: Fri Dec 19 08:47:00 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. :-)

Went to climb up Kahakula Head and within seconds of topping out, heard a horn from a truck below blasting without a pause. The truck blocked our car. A man got out and yelled at us to come down. He proceeded to take down our license plate. I yelled from the top "Can we continue to the summit?" and he replied with "this is private property." We came down and he told us, angrily, that we had trespassed, that this happens all the time, three people got injured and he doesn't want to be liable. Randy is his name. He says he puts up no trespassing signs, but they are constantly taken down.
