Some recent Sierra (and foothills) camping/biking shots [major B/W warning]

I've managed to get away on a couple solo camping/biking trips over the last month or so into the Sierra and foothills. Lots of riding and swimming. Stunningly beautiful out there. These are mostly in the Nevada City, Emigrant Gap, Feather River, Quincy regions (plus a local sunset and action shot of me riding)!

Very fortunate to have all of this within 3-4 hours of home.

Major Bandwith Warning. Stressing out my dial up connection.

These photos look absolutely GLORIOUS! That's what the great outdoors looks like.

Great photos, beautiful landscape! Thanks for sharing.

What is the first building (the smaller of the two)? An abandoned fire lookout?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Nice! thumbs up

Some of those shots look so pristine, it's like you're the first person ever there.

I go out into the boonies around here, (MI) I find litter such as bait containers/food wrappers scattered by waterways that makes me angry to see. Some people are so ignorant.



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

I backpacked in the Emigrant wilderness region a long while back. We didn't have digital cameras back then.

Small building with the crescent moon is the outhouse for the larger building which is an abandoned fire lookout as you noted. The cement pad for the outhouse has eroded over the years. Hard to tell from the shot but stepping out the outhouse and stumbling a few feet to your left would drop you down a 600' cliff face. There are plans to renovate the lookout and allow camping in it.

Thankfully it still feels pristine for a lot of these spots. I definitely seek that out!

At least you've got the memories! Emigrant Wilderness is beautiful as well. This is actually near Emigrant Gap north of I80 near Tahoe. Similar name, similar beauty...slightly different locale.

Great shots! I've been thinking that I should head up to do some Sierran camping while coronavirus is with us and out-of-state tourists are mostly staying away.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Try to do it before you can't do it. I've been trying to get out myself so that the summer isn't a complete bummer.

This x 1000!

Looking to get up to Mendocino for some camping & riding this weekend then hopefully some backpacking in the Trinity Alps in the next month or so. And a possible stretch to do the 4 Pass loop in Colorado again this fall.

Wow...good eye! Did this on my Ibis Ripmo. Fantastic bike from a fantastic company. I’m assuming you must ride because not many would have identified that from my shots. Santa Cruz has some great jumps.
