"Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, 
a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind. 
Walking is the exact balance between spirit and humility."

Notes on My Day Hiking Adventures

 

The first long day hike I remember is walking down from Glacier Point to the Yosemite Valley floor (4 miles) when I was around 12 years of age.  I backpacked on the High Sierra Trail from Sequoia National Park to Mt. Whitney Portal (72 miles) when I was 19.  I day hiked all the mountains around Los Angeles and San Bernardino in my younger years.  I've hiked in the many desert areas of Eastern California, Nevada, and Arizona.  I stayed in Bishop and day hiked in the Eastern Sierra every autumn in my 50's.  I have lived in Red Bluff, California, since 1998, and have day hiked scores of times in Northern California and Oregon. 

This year, 2016, I have many trips planned to Oregon, and campsites already reserved.  I will be camping and day hiking around: Nehalem Bay Sate Park, Sunset Beach State Park, Fort Stevens State Park, Oswald State Park, and William M. Tugman State Park. 

My current personal fitness program includes: walking 3.6 miles four days each week, weightlifting, taijiquan, gardening, and teaching yoga.  I am now 70 years of age. 

 

In 2006, my brother Philip and I hiked 11 miles to the top of North Dome in Yosemite National Park.
