Got on top of White Baldy’s South Summit last Tuesday, following a hike to White Pine Lake where my lady and I set up the tent for a peaceful camping night. The lake is incredibly low at the moment, but that didn’t take away from Continue reading ‘White Baldy South Summit and Camping at White Pine Lake’

Along the way, we saw about a dozen mountain bikers descending – and only three ascending, plenty of day hikers, some snow, and the Incredible Continue reading ‘Desolation Lake hike’
