Top O’ The Mountain

This scenic loop around Robertson Mountain is a good substitute hike for Old Rag Mountain, which lies right across Weakley Hollow. While it’s not as grand, this view is remarkable in that Mt. Marshall and the Peak, which are far away in the north district, are still visible from here. When he left the building for the last time he was rolled out the west front door. I skipped that detour to shorten the hike and cut back on the elevation gain; however, I have included in this post a description of a half-mile detour down the AT to a view of Bear Den and Scott Mountain. Zero upon a view (sunrise, river, farms, or forest), you wish to present through your mountain landscape drawing. Take a minute to give some consideration to your most recent mountain climbing experience. It’s for good reason, it’s one of the best places to …

Mountain Climbing (1)

I finished the binding, the hanging sleeve and the stitching down of the label on this quilt last night! The mountain is located in Sajama National Park in the southwest of the country some 16-24 km (10-15 mi) from the border with Chile. Mauna Loa (4,169 m or 13,678 ft) is the largest mountain on Earth in terms of base area (about 2,000 sq mi or 5,200 km2) and volume (about 18,000 cu mi or 75,000 km3). The spur leads first to a campsite with a fire ring atop the mountain and then to a viewpoint on an open granite slab overlooking Berry Hollow. For a number of years Big Mountain ran a mountain bike safari trip in South Africa and Botswana where you’d ride from luxury camp to luxury camp in a 70,000 acre game reserve. Because indigenous people are also referred to other mountain Chalten, he was named …

From Mountain Top To Valley And Back (1)

The Green Mountain Club is the founder and maintainer of the Long Trail – the oldest long distance hiking trail in America. All proceeds from the 21k and 42k race entry fees will go to Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve to help them continue the great work they do. All proceeds from the 5k race entry fees will go to the Exceptional Foundation as a thank you for making the race medals for the last 2 years.mountain

BTW there really isn’t any meaningful amount of connecting VTA bus traffic at Mountain VIew today, and there will be less in the future as VTA’s service continues to implode as the agency squanders hundreds of millions of public tax dollars on BART to Berryessa, to the exclusion of every other thing.mountainmountain

And, by the way, we’ve had people screaming about reducing growth here the whole time too, so that’s not a solution either. …

Facts About The Mountain Lion

Dobie Mountain is the summit that lies just to the north of the ultra-popular Humpback Rocks. If you plan to hike this as the shorter 3.6-mile version, turn right and head south; otherwise, turn north and descend on the AT. After a half mile of descent down some switchbacks, I came to a very small clearing with a view north to Bear Den and Scott Mountains in Shenandoah.mountainmountain

Like the mountain climber, once that intermediate goal is accomplished, then you will find yourself halfway up the mountain. It took the right people in the right place at the right time to make this happen. Conquer that single piece of ground and you will surely conquer the mountain in time. The bikes of choice in Whistler at the time were heavy overbuilt freeride bikes with double-crown forks and 3” tires built for jumping off roofs and big stunts. We crossed the …

Skinner Mountain Ride (1)

There are three main types of mountains: volcanic , fold , and block 15 All three types are formed from plate tectonics : when portions of the Earth’s crust move, crumple, and dive. While it’s not as grand, this view is remarkable in that Mt. Marshall and the Peak, which are far away in the north district, are still visible from here.
