Bob Burd's Sierra Travels

Last Updated: Thu Oct 30 20:38:58 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. :-)

Bob, it would be interesting to hear about your run-ins with bears and other cool critter. You don't have many hike stories that include notes on that. With all your bushwacking, there must be some stories. I don't hike as much as you but have had quite a few interesting encounters. You must have had some......
Bob replies: I do mention them when I run into them, but it's fairly infrequent. Mostly they run away before I can get the camera out. Only once I had bear growl at me and it was with a cub rummaging through the garbage cans at Twin Lakes CG. The two most memorable bear encounters were ones I didn't even see. See the 1999 report for Matthes Crest and the 2005 report for Cathedral Rocks.
