The majestic and glorious Sierra Nevada mountains of California - no other mountain range can combine the hiker-friendly attributes of easy access, mild weather, and incredible scenery.  It is a place where God’s beautiful creation is pure, and the Lord’s awesome power can be seen firsthand.

The “call” of the Sierras has attracted my wife and I to explore the wilderness from Yosemite National Park in the north to the Mineral King region of Sequoia National Park in the south - and everywhere in between.

As a water resources engineer in Fresno, CA, I have actually been able to occasionally work on projects related to the Sierras, especially the Kings River (mainly below the dam, however).  I am so blessed to be married to my best friend and adventure partner.  And with a kid on the way, we’re already scheming ways to take our kid with us on our future adventures.

Check back often as new hiking and backpacking trip reports and guides are posted, along with other valuable resources.
