the winter of camping trips: a return to steep ravine


a rainy night, but we're from oregon

thanksaween! [thansgiving+halloween on valentine's day]

found the heater

an overnighter to china camp

the ride out there isn't the most scenic, but there are some beautiful trails once you get there

mark escorted me to hawk camp for a solo overnighter. coastal trail always looks so good.

dumbarton bridge area on the way to black mountain


spent the night on black mountain on my way to beachtown. it snowed that night, which caught me off guard as i only had a tarp and a summer bag. but i didn't freeze and my new farfarer trailer felt great through the dirt and mud.

sweet downhills before the thick mud began.


tuli and kyle escorted me up mount charlie to the summit on my way out of beachtown.

smoky sunset

leaving some big trees on my way to mattole road and the lost coast


so hot, so dusty, and so steep going up wilder ridge road

super steep descents on king's peak road

multiply by four to convert to normal miles

got an early start out of nadelos campground

a freshly paved ascent on chemise mountain road

the obligatory shot of the entrance to usal road

packed dirt and cool coastal weather on usal was nice a change from the heat and loose gravel of king's peak road

usal doesn't make it easy to leave the lost coast, saving the steepest for last on the ascent out of usal beach

highway one

good bathroom reading

one of my favorite stretches of pavement on the coastal route just north of jenner and above the fog

coastal, becoming tunnel
