High Sierra's - Lamarck Col Day 1 and 2

5 days on trail! This was a very challenging but rewarding hike that began in the Inyo National forest, accessed via the town of Bishop. We hiked over the Lamarck Col and then descended to connect to the John Muir Trail. It was an epic, stunning segment via a "use trail." Meaning, follow a trail made naturally by animals. As you could image, we got lost several times, but eventually found our way! 

High Sierra's - Evolution Lakes to Bishop Pass

Day 3, 4, and 5 we followed the John Muir Trail through the amazing Evolution Lakes where the quiet and magnitude of the mountains was both unchanging and a dynamic environment. It felt like being witness to eternity, seeing the stillness draped over the vast landscapes.

Van Box - Sleeping Platform

A work in progress... we are building a storage and sleeping box designed to fit in the back our of van. This will make car camping a breeze! We can roll up late, setup the platform within the van and have places to put everything. The box will be constructed out of plywood with a folding platform. When not in use, the middle seats can be reinstalled, but the back seats will be removed all the time.
