My time so far on the east side of the Sierra has been great. I got to do some good rock climbing and climb one of the most fun routes of my life on the West Ridge of Mt. Conness in Yosemite. I may actually stay here until I go to Antarctica in mid-September. There is a part-time job and a room here for me in June Lake, CA. I was really looking forward to weeks of downtime in Missoula, but like I have said before Missoula will always be there. There are a lot of places in this part of CA that I have always wanted to spend more time in.

Plus the coolest gas station ever is here. What would make a gas station so great? You take a simple gas station add good food, live music and neat people then you get the coolest gas station ever.

I’m leaving this afternoon to guide a 6-day backpack through northern Yosemite. It starts on the east side of the Sierra and ends on the western side at Hetch Hetchy dam. This hike is part of a fundraiser to remove the dam, which like most dams, is pretty useless.
