Towering at over 12,276 feet, it is the second tallest volcano in Washington and the third tallest in the Cascade Range. It is also the second largest Cascade stratovolcano by volume. Adams is covered by 10 major glaciers; it’s largest is the Adams Glacier. It is also one of the least visited and least protected volcanoes in the Cascades. Wilderness makes up about one-third of the volcano’s total area.
Mount Adams is characterized by stunning wildflower meadows, tumbling streams and rivers, lava flows, alpine meadows, tranquil lakes, majestic glaciers, and vast canyons.

I started off with the intent to summit Hadley Peak, but had to settle for getting most of the way up Chowder Ridge before turning around, due to not being properly equipped to cross treacherous snow.
But even just to the end of Cougar Divide is a great hike. The trail is a bit rough because it’s not maintained by the Forest Service, but not too bad.
To get here head east on Mount Baker Highway from Bellingham, then turn off on Wells Creek Road, the road to Nooksack Falls. Drive all the way to the end, nearly 13 miles (go left at the fork about 12 miles up). Like the trail, the road is rough, and not maintained after crossing Wells Creek 6 miles in. Not recommended for low-clearance vehicles.

Escalante National Monument, Coyote Gulch and Owl and Fish Creek Canyons. Native American kivas, lots of class five scrambles and the ever present concern of finding water…Check it out.

Some highlights of Salt Lake City. A place with beautiful mountains and buildings. Definitely a place worth visiting.
‘Salt Lake City is the capital and the most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Utah. With an estimated population of 190,884 in 2014, the city is the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a population of 1,153,340 (2014 estimate). Salt Lake City is further situated within a larger metropolis known as the Salt Lake City–Ogden–Provo Combined Statistical Area. This region is a corridor of contiguous urban and suburban development stretched along an approximately 120-mile (190 km) segment of the Wasatch Front, comprising a population of 2,423,912 as of 2014. It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other is Reno, Nevada).
The world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is located in Salt Lake City and the city’s street grid system is based on the temple constructed by the Church at its center. The city was originally founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, and other followers of the Church, who were seeking to escape religious persecution in the mid-western United States. These Mormon pioneers, as they would come to be known, at first encountered an arid, inhospitable valley that they then extensively irrigated and cultivated, thereby establishing the foundation to sustain the area’s large population of today.
Due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake, the city was originally named “Great Salt Lake City”; however, the word “great” was dropped from the official name in 1868 by the 17th Utah Territorial Legislature.
Immigration of international LDS members, mining booms, and the construction of the first transcontinental railroad initially brought economic growth, and the city was nicknamed the Crossroads of the West. It was traversed by the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway, in 1913, and presently two major cross-country freeways, I-15 and I-80, intersect in the city. Salt Lake City has since developed a strong outdoor recreation tourist industry based primarily on skiing, and hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is the industrial banking center of the United States’

From hiking on glaciers, helicopter rides, whale watching, and dog sledding it was a blast. We loved showing off the last frontier with our passengers and exploring on our days off.

A lot of fun, but the trail definitely humbled me! Gave me good insight of what I need to work on to become a better rider.
White Oak Mountain at Southern Adventist University have a large variety of trails and I think it totals up to be about 30miles if you rode every trail. Good green trails, couple blue downhill runs and the black trails really give you a challenge.

Views:615|Rating:5.00|View Time:5:5Minutes|Likes:15|Dislikes:0 On one of the “beautiful” days in Sitka, AK my brother and I decided to hike up to the top of Mt. Verstovia and from there to the top of Arrowhead! This hike is about 2.5 miles one way and it took us about 4 hours to complete the overall journey. This was a wonderful experience hiking in the fug and soaking in a unique scenery.

Views:2216|Rating:4.81|View Time:2:16Minutes|Likes:25|Dislikes:1 Hiking on June 4th, 2017 to the Hole In The Wall in Reno, Nevada.The Hole in the Wall is literally a hole in a giant rock with water flowing through it from the Sierra Nevada mountains. It then flows into the Steamboat Ditch and then down into Reno to be used as water for farming.
The total hike was about 6.5 miles and took about 3 hours. Total elevation gain was only a couple hundred feet.
All of the footage was taken with an iPhone 6s plus. The video was edited in Final Cut Pro.
