Imagini dintr-o excursie de 10 zile. Am zburat la Las Vegas, inchiriat masina. Apoi am pornit spre Grand Canyon pe parte sudica, cu o scurta oprire pe la Hoover Dam.  Am coborit in Grand Canyon, am pus cortul linga Colorado River la Phantom Ranch. Apoi am urcat inapoi pe creasta de sud a canyon-ului folosind Bright Angel Trail. A fost un hike greu, mult soare si foarte cald. Oricum Bright Angel Trail a fost o alegere inteleapta, deoarece ofera destul de multe zone umbrite.

Bright Angel Trail Summary:
  • Length: 9.9 mi (15.9 km) to Phantom Ranch to Grand Canyon (South Rim) 
  • Elevation change: 4,380 ft (1,340 m) 
  • Highest point: South Rim, 6,860 ft (2,090 m)   
  • Lowest point: Colorado River, 2,480 ft (760 m)

Am ajuns la Mt. Whitney cu o oprire de cateva ore pentru poze prin Death Valley .  Aici obiectivul a fost 2 zile de hike pentru varful de 4,421 m al muntelui  Mt Whitney. Prima noapte am pus corturile la Outpost Camp, 4 mile de la inceputul trail-ului si 7 mile de virf. Este o alegere foarte buna. Acest campground este mult mai bine protejat decit Trail Camp care chiar daca este cu 2 mile mai aproape de varf , dar este chiar sub creasta muntelui, stincos , deschis si expus la vint si furtuni. A doua zi am pornit la 4:30 noaptea, lasand corturile si rucsaci mari la campground. Am ajuns pe varf la 10:30. Am pierdut vreamea pe varf pina la 12:00. Apoi am coborat inapoi la corturi, am strins corturile si am continuat inapoi la masina care era parcata la trail head , adica  Mt. Whitney Portal aflat la 12 mile de varful muntelui Whitney. Am ajuns la masina pe la 10 seara. Din cauza ca noapte ne-a prins pe traseu pentru o ora am crezut ca am ratacit poteca si cu un pic de panica si confuzie ce sa facem si pe unde sa o luam. Invatatura de minte : e obligatoriu sa nu te prinda noaptea pe traseu. La lumina lanternei totul este diferit! 

Mount Whitney (Sierra Nevada) Summary:
  • Trailhead Elevation = 8,350ft (2,530m)
  • Top Elevation = 14,505ft (4,421m)
  • Elevation Gain = 6,155ft (1,865m)
  • Difficulty = Strenuous (intens)
  • Distance (round trip) = 22 miles ( 35km )

Urmatoare etapa a fost sa conducem la Yosemite Park cu oprire pe la: Juno Lake Loop ( este o bucla de facut cu masina, extrem de pitoreasca. Obligatorul de facut daca ajungi in zona ) si la Mono Lake. La Mono Lake, am prins vinturi de 40-50 km, cu vreme rece pe masura. Dar am avut noroc de lumina spledintita pentru fotografie.

Initial vroiam sa punem cortul linga Yosemite Park la Saddlebags Lake care e la 3500m inaltime. Cum vremea s-a schimbat in rau si promitea temperaturi de -10C pentru noapte am decis cu toti ca e mai bine sa cautam un motel. Am gasit un Motel 6 la Mammoth Lake Resort , o jumate de ora departare de Mono Lake.

In Yosemite Park era in plan sa urcam pe muntele Dana 3950 m , dar ne-a apucat lenea si am lenevit la soare la baza muntelui. Am urcat si coborit destul in excursie asta; am vrut sa ne aducem aminte cum e sa te mai si relaxezi: -)
