Midwesterners in the Sierra Nevada
This is a collection of reports on various hikes a group
of not entirely fit Midwesterners have made in the Sierra Nevada. I find
reading reports of other people's trips helps and sometimes amuses me,
so perhaps others will be similarly assisted by these. For other information,
consider my favorite
books on the Sierra Nevada.
My own "first summer in the Sierra" dates back to
1972, when I worked at Tuolumne Meadows Lodge in Yosemite National
Park. I was slow back then. Forty years have not increased my hiking
speed. Still, I enjoy it, and have lured a variety of friends to join
me. Most of them are still speaking to me.

My own favorite source of information on the Sierra is High
where someone will know just about anything there is to know about hiking
in the Sierra.
