Kendrick Canyon Backpack with the Sierra Geezers - July 17-25, 2006 : It's been called an impassable brush-choked canyon by Schiller. Michael says "Kendrick doesn't give up her charms easily. You have to work for them." I say, "Without leather gaitors against the manzanita and a machete for trailblazing through 8 foot tall bullrush, stay the hell out, unless you want to deeply know one of the most gorgeous, isolated and least visited canyons in the Sierra."

2006 (Dec 9) Snow Crown - my 3rd attempt : After turning back last week at Heart Lake, we decided to try again with an earlier start.  There was a lot of snow and ice in the boulder field so we turned back after 30 minutes.  (wk 47, day 1)

2006 (Dec 3) Snow Crown - second attempt : After yesterday's trifecta, I wasn't sure how far up the trail I could go.  My right knee and top of foot were pretty sore.  We took a break at Heart Lake, and I heard Rachel say something about saving her knees after yesterday.  I quickly said I would go back with her. Tomcat chose to be with the better looking pair and went back with us.  We'll just have to do Snow Crown another time . . . this was my 2nd attempt (wk 46, day 2)
