Mt Laguna, CA

The next storm started coming in today. Winds are blowing hard and the clouds started streaming over the mountains this afternoon. We made it to the small town of Mt. Laguna a few hours before the rain started to fall. Now the rain is blowing sideways. It looks as though we are going to have […]

We made it to Echo Summit this evening, under 1100 miles to go. It was an interesting stretch as this it’s my home turf and I have hiked and skied this stretch countless times. However this was or first stretch skiing on this trip. We made good time in completing the section in two and […]
