My events have concluded for 2013. Stay tuned for more events in 2014.
The 200-mile SHR runs parallel and sometimes concurrent with the popular John Muir Trail. But when the JMT heads low, the SHR stays high, penetrating some of the most magnificent terrain in the High Sierra.
For the 2014 season, I will be offering four types of learning-intensive trips:
- Level 1: Backpacking Fundamentals
- Level 2: Southwest Canyon Adventure
- Level 3: High Sierra Adventure
- Level 3: Winter Backpacking
Registration will open to new clients in early-February, except for three courses scheduled in February, for which registration will open in mid-December.
My trips in 2013 were extremely popular, with 12 out of 17 selling out. If you hope to join me in 2014, registration as soon as you are able.
