What do you need to go backpacking with kids? What would be great to have? Where can you buy it? After more than a decade of backpacking with my littles I've got a decent list ready to share with you. full story

One last trip up Granite before the snows come
November 12, 2017
It became my go-to for quick summer hikes, but that time has come to an end. full story and photos

What happened to the snow?
November 10, 2017
Just five days after our last hike up the home trail and the snow's gone replaced with a bunch of big mud holes. (Truth be told, Treen kind of enjoyed the mud.) full-size photo

Back to the home trail
November 5, 2017
Things are a lot different (i.e., colder) since the last time we were here. full story and photos

No. 1: The Larch (Or why we drove for three hours to see a bunch of trees)
October 29, 2017
How to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away. (It had to be said.) full story and photos

When life blocks your trail with waterfalls go find a lake
October 22, 2017

Welcome to winter! What a difference 30 days makes in the mountains
October 8, 2017
Conditions change fast in the mountains, especially in the autumn. (This is mostly pictures. What more do you need to know about Granite Mountain anyway?) full story and photos

Off the beaten path: Why going where nobody else goes is good for everyone
October 1, 2017
Should I take that epic photo and post it for the world to see? Should I tell people where it is and how to get there? Or should I keep it secret? full story and photos

Next time I suggest the Rattlesnake Traverse please remind me not to be so foolish
September 28, 2017
No. Seriously. There is so little to recommend this route we should have known better. full story and photos

Defying the smoke of wildfires on Mt. Defiance
September 17, 2017
Heavy smoke won't keep us inside, but the way we coughing afterward maybe it should have. full story and photos
