Skiing Among Giants

The last time I tried to hike to the Tuolumne Grove, one of Yosemite National Park’s three groves of giant sequoias, I had to turn back. There was no injury or emergency, there were just too many people. I’m glad they are stalking selfies with sequoias instead of hunting for bargains at the mall, but I cannot contemplate the splendor of the largest living things on the planet in a chattering crowd.

    Have you ever thought of hiking the PCT? 🥾⁠

    Our latest issue has the first of five stories in a series by Matt Johanson who has been sectioning the PCT for the past twenty plus years. ⁠

    Matt recently took a one-year leave from teaching at Castro Valley High School to complete the remaining 2,250 miles.⁠

    Lucky for Matt, his wife Karen has encouraged him to live his dream and has been providing support along the way. ⁠

    📸 Matt is pictured here with his wife Karen, and their two dogs Sam and Elliot. ⁠

    You can read his story "Sierra Splendor" via the link in our bio (🔗💕).⁠

    In case you missed it, Yosemite announced yesterday that Big Oak Flat Road (continuation of Highway 120 west into Yosemite) is closed from just inside the park boundary to Merced Grove.⁠

    "The road has a crack that is about 200 feet long and up to four feet deep. The road surface has moved two to three inches vertically and horizontally and is continuing to move.⁠

    The embankment below the road has moved as much as 15 feet downslope and has significant water flow through it."⁠

    The road will be closed at least until mid-June and possibly into July. ⁠
